Darkwave pop Goths DEPECHE MODE will share their new LP – their 15th – named MEMENTO MORI, with the world on 24 March. The first one without original member Andy Fletcher who passed away last May – only 60 – following an aortic dissection.
Dave Gahan: “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue as we’re sure this
is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning. Fletch would have loved this album. We’re really looking forward to sharing it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present it to you live at the shows next year.”
Finally, the first single, named GHOST AGAIN is out.
Gahan: “To me it just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy.”
Gore: “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.”
Ghosts Again is a surprisingly simple feel-good tune. Sparkling synths,
starry-eyed Gahan vocals, and tremendously infectious. Sunshine after
rain. A sweet rainbow song.
The accompanying video is directed by celebrated
Dutch rock photographer/filmmaker Anton Corbijn.
