(Columbia Records; New York, NY; February 1, 2017) – Iconic, multi-platinum selling musical pioneers Depeche Mode will release their much anticipated new single “Where’s The Revolution” on Friday, February 3rd. The track, which Depeche Mode teased during their highly viewed press conference in Milan this past fall, is the first new music from the band in four years and the first offering from their impending 14th studio album, Spirit, which will be released globally on March 17th on Columbia Records.
Spirit marks the band’s first collaboration with producer James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (Foals, Florence & The Machine, Arctic Monkeys) and serves as the follow up to the band’s blockbuster 2013 album Delta Machine which debuted at #1 in 12 countries. The album has already garnered critical acclaim in early previews, with Q Magazine calling Spirit “the most energized Depeche Mode album in years”.
Depeche Mode will support the release of the LP with an extensive world tour, giving both new and lifelong fans alike a chance to experience the band’s stunning live shows.
