It’s been four years since Depeche Mode’s last album Playing the Angel and in April they’ll follow it up with Sounds of the Universe (featuring cover art that looks like it’s from 1981). The band debuted the album’s first single “Wrong” over the weekend at the Echo Awards in Germany. Unfortunately it appears to be playback and not actually live but that’s how they do things on TV in Germany. The song is full of chanting, fat synths, and general darkness. DM fans rejoice.


The “Wrong” single is out on April 6th in Europe and April 7th in the US. Sounds of the Universe is out on April 20th in Europe and April 21st in the US.
