Depeche Mode Streaming New Album Delta Machine Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.19.2013
You can hear it now...
NME reports that Depeche Mode are streaming their new album Delta Machine online before its March 26 release.
It is their thirteenth album and was recorded last year in Santa Barbara, California and New York City. It was produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by FLood.
Dave Gahan said the band never talk about the possibility of releasing another album. He said: "We never know if we're going to do another record together - we don't really talk about it. We're planning a big tour that is going to go on towards the end of the summer of 2014. When I actually think about that now, it sounds daunting, but I want to enjoy it. You never know if there is going to be another one. We went through a lot together on the last tour, and probably the one before that and the one before that. When you're together with people for more than 30 years, there are bound to be ups and downs, things that bother you and things that you celebrate together. This one feels kind of like that. Martin [Gore]'s in a really great place; really in great shape, great health; excited about this record. He and I, we're both in that place where we're in awe of life at the moment, and what it is and what it still offers us."
Here's the track list:
'Welcome To My World'
'Secret To The End'
'My Little Universe'
'The Child Inside'
'Soft Touch/Raw Nerve'
'Should Be Higher'
'Soothe My Soul'
The band will play two shows at the O2 Arena in London on May 28 and 29. These are the only UK dates on a 34-date European tour that includes appearances at the Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium (July 7), BBK Festival in Spain (July 11) and Optimus Alive Festival in Portugal (July 13). A North American tour will follow later in the year.
