UK electronic band Depeche Mode have announced that they will be releasing a new album in March 2013 via Columbia Records. As-of-yet-untitled, this will be the first release through Columbia for the band. The band released a video showing them recording the album set to new music, which you can watch below.
“I am very happy with how the album turned out,” comments 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.”
Singer Dave Gahan comments, “The album has a very organic and direct feel to it. 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.”
Playing The Angel is one of my favorite albums of all time, so I’ll DEFINITELY be checking this album out the day it’s released!
