DEPECHE MODE ARE BACK WITH NEW ALBUM AND MAMMOTH GLOBAL “TOUR OF THE UNIVERSE”

Depeche Mode release Wrong, April 6th, on Mute, the first single from their eagerly-anticipated new album ‘Sounds Of The Universe’ out April 20th . Wrong is written by Martin Gore and produced by Ben Hillier (Blur, Doves, Elbow) who previously produced their 2005 album ‘Playing The Angel’ and the new album ‘Sounds Of The Universe’.

Wrong grabs the listener’s attention from its first stack-heeled, staccato shriek. Over stomping beats and screeching synthesisers, Dave hammers out Martin’s darkly comic reflections on a lifetime of mistakes, misdeeds and bad decisions. The track has a guaranteed future as a sky-punching stadium anthem – a Depeche Mode classic.

“We knew at an early stage that Wrong was going to be the first single because it’s quite different to anything we’ve released before. It’s got a rap feel to it, it’s probably as close to R&B as we’re ever going to sound.” says Martin.

The single is available on 2 CDs – a 2 track and a maxi featuring remixes of the single – plus 7”, and includes the exclusive B-side Oh Well, co-written by Dave and Martin.

Following the release of ‘Sounds Of The Universe’, Depeche Mode embark on their mammoth, global ‘Tour Of The Universe’, which kicks off in Israel, May 10th.

The tour features a date at London’s O2 Arena, May 30th, which remarkably sold out in one hour.
