LISTEN: Depeche Mode Reach Transcendence In “Heaven” Through Stern Synthpop

 

Though it's tough to pick favorites amongst Depeche Mode's overwhelmingly badass 12-album discography, there is that undeniable lingering quality in 1990 anthem, "Enjoy The Silence," that manages to shout out, "pick me!" Unfortunately, the more we heed the advice of that track's title, the more we anxiously anticipate a follow-up to 2009's Sounds of the Universe.

 

Today, it is time to blast some new New Wave, dubbed "Heaven": the first single off the electronic three-piece's forthcoming studio album, Delta Machine, available March 26 via Columbia Records.

Premiered via KROQ, this track is precisely what you'd predict DM's idea of heaven to be like: both grand and gloomy, that sinister element pretty difficult to shake when paired so perfectly with synth.
