Depeche Mode Reveal New Album Details
The band will be releasing the album in two different formats. A standard CD version and a deluxe edition that will feature four bonus tracks along with a 28 page hardcover book that will includes photos by their longtime collaborator Anton Corbijn.
"Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern," says Martin Gore. "I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It's just got something magical about it."
Dave Gahan adds, "With this release we've completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we'll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. Delta Machine is no different, and I can't wait for all of our fans to hear it."
"Delta Machine" was produced by Ben Hillier and was recorded in Santa Barbara, California and New York City.
The video for the first single "Heaven" is set to premiere on Vevo next Friday, February 1st.
The group will be launching a European stadium tour in support of the album. The trek will be preceded by a kick off concert in Tel Aviv on May 7th. They will be launching a North American tour soon after, with details coming soon.
