Depeche Mode start work on new album

Depeche Mode will start work on a new album this year.

In an interview with The Quietus, founding member Martin Gore revealed that the band would be hitting the studio this March and hoped to have finished the new LP, which will be their first studio effort since 2009's 'Sounds Of The Universe', by the end of this year.

Gore also said that working with former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke on their forthcoming LP 'Ssss' under their VCMG moniker had rejuvenated his creativity. "It was a nice break for me to be able to go and do something completely different that doesn't involve poring over lyrics and having to think about vocal melodies," he said, before adding: " I think I went back to actually writing for the band with much more vigour afterwards, because I had taken such a break. It gave me a real creative impetus."

'Ssss', which is set for release on March 12, sees Gore and Clarke working together for the first time in over 30 years. The 'Ssss' tracklisting is:

'Lowly'
'Zaat'
'Spock'
'Windup Robot'
'Bendy Bass'
'Single Blip'
'Skip This Track'
'Aftermaths'
'Recycle'
'Flux'
