The new Depeche Mode album – Delta Machine – coming this spring
The new single “Heaven” will be released next Friday. Now, the band have announced that the new Depeche Mode album, entitled “Delta Machine” will be released this Spring.
The album, recorded over the last year in Santa Barbara, California and New York City, was produced by Ben Hillier, who also was a part in producing the last two albums “Sounds of the Universe” and “Playing the Angel”, and mixed by Flood.
The album, called Delta Machine will see Depeche going all-out with the packaging and gizmos.
As well as the standard version, fans will be able to get a deluxe edition that features photos by long-time collaborator Anton Corbijn, as well as remixes of forthcoming single ‘Heaven’ by Matthew Dear, Owlle, Steps to Heaven and Blawan (oof). ‘Heaven’ will be premiered on Vevo next Friday, February 1st.
Speaking about the new record, Martin Gore said: “Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern. 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” will be released through Columbia Records on March 26th, 2013.
In addition to the album announcement, Depeche Mode have also confirmed that the video for the first single “Heaven” will debut on VEVO next Friday, February 1st.
