Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan has said the band have 20 songs lined up for their next album.

The singer reckons the band will be hitting the studio in April to lay down tracks for their first LP since 2009's 'Sounds Of The Universe'.

Gahan told Rolling Stone:

We've got about 20 songs demoed and we're going to begin recording at the end of next month.


He added: "It's a very different process from what it used to be.

"You've got to put interesting people around you, you've got to work with people who are going to inspire you to take the songs you've written into a completely different direction, because there's nothing more boring than going to the studio and predictably knowing what is going to happen."

Founding member Martin Gore also recently said that the band hope to have their new album finished by the end of this year.

His VCMG side project with ex-Mode member Vince Clarke will release their debut LP 'Ssss' in the UK on March 12.
