The synth-pop heroes return with 'Spirit'
Depeche Mode have announced details of their new album ‘Spirit’ – along with a world tour, a headline set at Nos Alive festival and a show at London Stadium.
Next Spring, the synth-pop heroes will release their 14th studio album and the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Delta Machine’ in early Spring. Announcing the record and tour at a livestreamed event from Milan, the band revealed that it was an ‘incredible sounding recording’ produced by James Ford.
“We’re exceptionally proud of Spirit’s sound and energy, and we’re excited to get back on tour to share it with our fans around the world,” said frontman Dave Gahan.
As well as adding that they’ll be working with legendary photographer and director Anton Corbijn on the visuals for the album and tour, they’ll be hitting the road to take in 32 shows in 21 countries throughout the year.

Among the shows, they’ll be headlining one of Europe’s finest festivals at Portugal’s Nos Alive – topping the bill on the closing day of Saturday 8 July. The rest of the line-up is yet to be announced, but Nos Alive 2016 saw incredible performances from the likes of Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Pixies, Chemical Brothers, Biffy Clyro, Robert Plant, Wolf Alice and many more.
