Depeche Mode’s new album is called “Delta Machine”
Jan 2013 24

They took their time but now Depeche Mode and Columbia Records have revealed the title, track listing, cover image and so forth for the new, 13th studio album.

The album title is “Delta Machine” and it will be released on March 26. The video for first, delayed single “Heaven” will debut on VEVO next Friday, February 1. The track listing shows that the album features 13 songs with an additional 4 on the Deluxe Edition’s second disc. Single song “Heaven” is number 3 and the last song is called “Goodbye” which could indicate that this album is Depeche Mode’s last, but it’s not likely considering the good mood in the band. Several song titles are short and simple like the aforementioned and “Angel”, “Slow”, “Broken” and “Alone”.

“Delta Machine” was produced by Ben Hillier, mixed by Flood and the recordings took place in Santa Barbara and New York City during the last year.

- Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern, Martin Gore says. 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.
