Depeche Mode return with a brand new single and video.
Well todays the day and new single Heaven has been unleashed upon the masses. There’s always a sense of heightened tension whenever the Boys from Basildon announce a new release. Heaven is the first single to be taken from upcoming album Delta Machine, which has been described as a cross between electronic masterpiece Violator and the harder, rockier Songs of Faith and Devotion. As these are two of my favourite albums I’m expecting to be in ‘heaven’ pretty soon. Although I was surprised by the slow pace of Heaven, I have to say that it’s a beautiful song and Martin Gore and Dave Gahan’s vocals connect harmoniously. But don’t ask me what’s going on with the masked ladies – I guess that they’ll have something to do with the ‘arty’ concert backdrops. This release also has a wonderful web-based preview campaign. It showed the ‘heavens‘ and fan tweets appeared in the stars. Simple but effective. Delta Machine arrives on 25 March and I can’t wait.
