Depeche Mode album news; European tour dates

Depeche Mode are set to release their 13th studio album in March on Columbia Records.

“I am very happy with how the album turned out,” comments DM’s Martin Gore. “The music has a similar vibe to Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion and I think the songs on the album are among some of the very best we’ve done.”

It's not a blues record, but it definitely has a soulful vibe. During the recording process we really tried to get the elements of performing and the live show into the album more.” The band gave fans a glimpse into the making of the new album in October when they released the following video clip featuring new music ( Additional album details will be disclosed in the coming weeks.
