Depeche Mode release new album, ‘Memento Mori’: Listen

The band's 15th full-length LP is the first since the passing of co-founder Andy Fletcher last year


Depeche Mode have released their highly-anticipated new album, 'Memento Mori'. Listen to it below.

Announced back in October last year, the album marks the English electronic band's first album since the passing of founding member Andy Fletcher earlier in the year. 

Now comprised of co-founders Dave Gahan and Martin Gore, the group's new release is their 15th full-length to date and features lead singles 'Ghosts Again' and 'My Cosmos Is Mine'. It comes six years after their 14th album, 'Spirit'.

Last year, Gore said about 'Memento Mori': “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue as we’re sure this is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning.”

“Fletch would have loved this album," added Gahan.

Depeche Mode kick off a huge tour next month, with live shows to take place across America and Europe, starting in Sacramento, California, on 23rd March. The group will also play arena shows across Europe this summer, and are set to headline Primavera Sound 2023.
