Day-Glo (Based On A True Story) is an album of brand new tracks, each created using elements of their previous release The Neon. Vince Clarke has reworked the files created for that last album and created something that has more in common with German EBM outfit And One. Andy Bell has then recorded new vocals to add to these tracks.

This is no remix album, as the reworkings have created a new set of songs, resulting in atmospheric tracks which are laced with vocals that sometimes have an ethereal quality. This is less about creating catchy top 40 hits and more about letting the musicianship shine through, meaning that Day-Glo is an interesting and unique chapter in the Erasure catalogue.
