Depeche Mode - Spirit

Depeche Mode
Spirit(Columbia Records)
One of the most influential and beloved electronic pop acts of the genre returns with their fourteenth studio album from an unparalleled four-decade career. Timely, direct and socially-aware, the release gets political right out of the gate with three brilliant lead tracks — “Going Backwards,” “Where’s the Revolution?” and “The Worst Crime.” The album also features exquisite production by James Ford (revered for his previous work with acts such as Florence + The Machine). Some of Spirit’s other highlights include the optimistic “So Much Love,” the emotional battle cry “Scum,” and the inspiring anthem “No More (This is The Last Time).” Depeche Mode embarks on their Global Spirit Tour later this summer.
