Electronic pop pioneers Depeche Mode have recorded a version of one of their songs in a made up language, for a new computer game.

Electronic pop heroes Depeche Mode have recorded a version of their song 'Suffer Well' in 'Simlish', the made up language used in the Sim computer games.

The reworking of the track, which is the third single to be released from their latest album 'Playing The Angel', will appear on the new 'The Sims 2: Open For Business' game, produced by EA Games.

Steve Schnur, CEO of EA, confirmed that the Slimlish track will be included in the game.

The Sims game is massively popular
He said: "This unprecedented collaboration brings together two celebrated entertainment icons, and gives millions of Sims fans the opportunity to hear one of their favorite bands sing in Simlish."

Depeche Mode's David Gahan added: "Re-recording a Simlish-language version of 'Suffer Well' just sounded completely bizarre.

"Of course, that's why we couldn't resist doing it."
