Depeche Mode - Wrong: Wikipedia Album Entry
Wrong is Depeche Mode's first single from their most recent studio album, Sounds of the Universe, and their 46th UK single overall. It hit the radio in February 2009, and became available for purchase online on February 24, 2009. The single was physically released on April 6, 2009.
The single officially debuted on February 21, 2009, when the band performed at the Echo Awards in Germany. A video from this performance was the most viewed clip on YouTube for the following two days.
"Wrong" has received a positive response on United States alternative rock radio, becoming one of the 30 most-played songs in its first week of release. It has received significant airplay from stations such as KCXX, KXRX, WROX-FM, KROQ, WEQX, XTRA, WWCD, CIMX, CFNY-FM, and KVGS.
"Wrong" was added to the BBC Radio 6 "B-List" playlist for the week starting 7 March 2009. However, a week after physical release in April 2009, it charted at #24, the lowest UK chart position for the initial single from a Depeche Mode studio album ("Dreaming of Me", while charting at #57 in 1981, was not an "official" track from the Speak & Spell album). By contrast, Sounds of the Universe itself reached #2 in the UK upon release in late April, Depeche Mode's highest album chart position there since 1997.
The B-side "Oh Well" (which also appears on the Sounds of the Universe deluxe box set edition) is the first collaboration between Martin Gore (music) and Dave Gahan (lyrics).
