Depeche Mode share “Ghosts Again,” first single from new LP ‘Memento Mori’
Depeche Mode have a new album, Memento Mori, on the way, and they've just shared details. It's out March 24 via Columbia and was produced by James Ford and Marta Salogni. Check out the artwork and tracklist below.
The first single is "Ghosts Again," which was co-written with The Psychedelic Furs' Richard Butler and is a little brighter, melodically, than they've been in a while. (It also sounds more than a little like New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle.") “To me, ‘Ghosts Again’ just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy,” says frontman Dave Gahan while songwriter Martin Gore adds, “It’s not often that we record a song that I just don’t get sick of listening to – I’m excited to be able to share it.” As usual, it comes with a video directed by Anton Corbijn who also designed the album cover. Watch that below.
This will be their first album and tour since the death of founding member Andy Fletcher last year. The tour begins March 25 in Sacramento, with Kelly Lee Owens opening all dates except the NYC show at Madison Square Garden on April 14 with Stella Rose and the Dead Language.
