Finally the wait is over! Electro pioneers Depeche Mode are set to release their 13th studio album in March 2013. 'I am very happy with how the album turned out,' comments Depeche's founder Martin Gore. 'The music has a similar vibe to Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion and I think there are a few songs on the album that are among some of the very best we've done.' The band has announced that the new album will contain brand new tracks written by Gore and Dave Gahan. Dave reveals, 'The album has a very organic and direct feel to it. It's not a blues record, but it definitely has a soulful vibe. During the recording process we really tried to get the elements of performing and the live show into the album more.'
