Oct 11, 2016 Bookmark and Share


British 1980s legends Depeche Mode have never really gone away. Since their 1981 debut album, Speak & Spell, they've continued to release well-received new albums every few years and play to large crowds of devoted fans. Now they have another excuse to get up on stage, as the band has announced a new album and coinciding tour. The album is entitled Spirit and it's due out next spring on Columbia. Beyond the fact that it's being produced by Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford, no other info on the album (such as a tracklist, cover art, exact release date, first single, etc.) has been given. Although at a press conference today in Milan where the band announced the album they played a brief video that showcased a snippet of the album. Watch the video below (skip to around the 14-minute mark to hear the music). The album is the follow-up to 2013's Delta Machine.

The band have also announced "The Global Spirit Tour," a European stadium tour next summer, with North and South American tour dates promised for later in 2017. In partnership with the Swiss watchmaker Hublot, on the tour Depeche Mode will be raising money and awareness for Charity: Water, whose mission is to provide safe drinking water to everyone in the world. The tour dates are below.
