Depeche Mode premieres new single on German TV
My favorite band of all time, Depeche Mode, premiered their new single, called "Wrong", on German TV tonight at the 2009 ECHO Awards. Scheduled for worldwide release in a couple weeks, the track is the first single off the upcoming album "Sounds of the Universe".
The Mode are still making kick-ass music 28 years after releasing their debut single in 1981. They pioneered electronic music, and dozens of bands owe their very existence, let alone their sounds, to Depeche Mode. The band looks to be returning to a more elctronic sound on the new album, and to me "Wrong" has a very classic late-80's/early-90's DM feel to it.
How much do I like Depeche Mode? Enough to have three of their images tatooed on my right arm...
