Martin Gore Announces New Album
I make no bones about my love of Depeche Mode. I even cried at a show a few years back; I miss my Maggie dog, they got me with the sad doggies on the video screen during “Precious”, it was an emotional time, family stuff, whatever, man enough to admit it.
Anyway, the driving force behind Depeche Mode has always been Mr. Martin L. Gore. You will see that name on the writing credits for every song, only joined by David Gahan a few times. The guy is a prolific songwriter, I even have a rather rare “solo” album where Gahan still provides vocals. Depeche Lite? But Martin’s latest project is truly solo, instrumental electronic music and the preview track is wonderful. Solemn and melancholy, as could be expected, it works as a great prelude to the album called MG due in April on Mute Records because you want it to be five minutes longer.
