New video from Depeche Mode – Soothe My Soul
DEPECHE MODE have unveiled the video for ‘Soothe My Soul’, the second single to be taken from ‘Delta Machine. One of the standout tracks from the album, ‘Soothe My Soul’ is in stark contrast to the sedate lead single ‘Heaven’. The song bears the hallmarks of vintage DM, featuring a strong vocal performance from Messrs Gahan and Gore, set to a catchy blues riff not dissimilar to that of world conquering 1989 hit ‘Personal Jesus’. Indeed, the similarity between the tracks has already led to a spate of mash-ups appearing online.
Lyrically the song deals with one of Martin Gore’s favourite subjects; “there’s only one way to soothe my soul” he asserts, and the video should leave little doubt as to what he is referring to! Be warned if you are viewing at work, there is some risqué content featuring a naked model and a snake. Directed by Warren Fu, whose previous video credits include THE KILLERS and DAFT PUNK, it is an undeniably stylish affair, shot entirely in monochrome with a distinctive square frame.
