Listen: Depeche Mode release new album, 'Spirit'

Depeche Mode is finally back with new music. The seasoned British electronic rockers released their highly anticipated 14th studio album Spirit today, ahead of their recently announced North American tour. The album, which features their newest single "Where's the Revolution." Sources have said that the album features political statements, but according to Billboard, it was not intentional. 

“We recorded during the campaign. We were recording during the time when Brexit was happening and when we finally got the news," Depeche Mode's frontman, Dave Gahan told Billboard in an interview. "A lot of change, a lot of ‘Really?’-type stuff happening. But it’s been going all around the world, and this separatism, ‘I’ve got to keep mine, and get out of my way,’ and all the stuff we’ve been hearing for years about the one percent — ‘When are we going to see it trickle down?’ It comes up in ‘Poorman’ on this album. It’s an album that is reflecting a sign of the times. And it comes across in a very social way. I don’t think of songs in a political way.”

This album came out just in time for fans to get hyped before their tour. Take a look at Depeche Mode's 2017 North American tour dates below, including stops in Las Vegas and Santa Barbara, which you can buy right here on AXS. Listen to the full album Spirit below.
