Who: Side project of Depeche Mode’s frontman
that produced 2 studio albums so far.

New Album: IMPOSTER – covers LP
Release: 12th November 2021

Gahan: “When I listen to other people’s voices and songs, more importantly,
the way they sing them and interpret the words—I feel at home. I identify with it.
It comforts me more than anything else. There’s not one performer on the record
who I haven’t been moved by. I know we made something special, and I hope other
people feel that and it takes them on a little kind of trip – especially people who
love music and have for years.””
