KROQ in Los Angeles leaked the new Depeche Mode single "Heaven" early as both the song and video were supposed to be released on Friday. KROQ, a long-standing supporter of DM may have got permission to premiere the song early.
“Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern," Gore said in press materials for the band's upcoming album, "Delta Machine." "I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it."
“With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we'll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode sound, frontman Dave Gahan said. “'Delta Machine' is no different, and I can't wait for all of our fans to hear it.”
