Depeche Mode to release new album 'Memento Mori' in 2023

This will be their first album in six years and their first since Andy Fletcher's death.

Depeche Mode has announced the release of their new album "Memento Mori" - it will be released at the end of March 2023. It will be the band's first LP released since the death of keyboardist Andy Fletcher in May 2022.

The phrase "Memento Mori" is translated from Latin as "Remember death." However, according to the musicians, the name was coined during Fletcher's lifetime. Vocalist Dave Gahan revealed that work on the material began roughly "a couple of years ago" .

A video from the press conference has also appeared on the Web, where you can hear a fragment of one of the new compositions. Its name is still unknown.

Most of the songs were recorded at the California home of Depeche Mode guitarist Martin Gore. Gore and Gahan will be heading to New York shortly to finish their work. Although all the tracks have already been recorded, the mixing process is not yet complete. "Memento Mori" was produced by James Ford, who previously worked with Depeche Mode on their previous record "Spirit" (2017). The visual design of the album, as always, was handled by Anton Corbijn.

Memento Mori will also be Depeche Mode's first album in six years. In January 2021, Martin Gore released The Third Chimpanzee, a solo instrumental solo EPIn November of the same year, Dave Gahan presented the album "Imposter" with cover versions of songs by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and PJ Harvey. The year before, in November 2020, Depeche Mode was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And at the end of 2019, Anton Corbijn's concert film "Spirits In The Forest" dedicated to the band's fans premiered.
