British electro-pop band Depeche Mode releases its thirteenth studio album.
"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," Martin Gore, one of the main authors of the songs featuring on the album told the press.
"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," Gore added.
Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode is made up of Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy 'Fletch' Fletcher. The band has become one of the leading influences in the music industry and has sold over 100 million albums worldwide.
