Depeche Mode have finally set a date for the new album, now titled ‘Sounds Of The Universe’

From depechemode.com:

“January 15, 2009- Groundbreaking, chart-topping electro legends Depeche Mode are proud to announce the release of their long-anticipated new studio album, Sounds Of The Universe on April 21, 2009 (Mute Records).”

Looks like Dave Gahan is taking more of a prominent role as a second songwriter which, if his last solo effort is anything to go by, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

This is the quote from the press release that excites me:

“Recorded in Santa Barbara and New York, Depeche Mode returned to using a lot of vintage gear, from analogue synthesizers to drum machines, in order to conjure up the retro-futuristic arrangements featured on the album”

As ever, ‘Sounds Of The Universe’ will be released on Mute Records Ltd.

It looks like the album will actually be available for download on April 20th in Europe.

If we’re going to take about Depeche I can’t help but drop this 2006 reMix of ‘Personal Jesus’ by Boys Noize:

Along with some classic Mode from ’83:
