Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore releasing instrumental solo LP (listen to a track)
Depeche Mode songwriter Martin Gore will release an all-instrumental album, titled MG, via Mute on April 28. It’s his first solo release since 2003 and Gore says…
As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words. Especially when they are juxtaposed in the right way with chords and melody. I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.
I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like qualit. Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least 5 days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.
