Depeche Mode have released the first single, titled Ghosts Again, with a new music video from their forthcoming record, Memento Mori.

The record has been confirmed for a release date of 24 March 2023, and will be the band’s first record since the passing of founding member Andy “Fletch” Fletcher who sadly died in 2022.

Ghosts Again provides the classic synthesised footprint of Depeche Mode that we all know and love – the stylistic trademark which earned them the impressive achievement of having sold over 100 million records.

Dave Gahan commented on the release, “To me, Ghosts Again just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy,” Martin Gore added, “It’s not often that we record a song that I just don’t get sick of listening to – I’m excited to be able to share it.”

Watch the video and listen below:

Produced by James Ford, with additional production work by Marta Salogni, Memento Mori consists of 12 tracks. Here’s the tracklist:

  • My Cosmos Is Mine
  • Wagging Tongue
  • Ghosts Again
  • Don’t Say You Love Me
  • My Favourite Stranger
  • Soul With Me
  • Caroline’s Monkey
  • Before We Drown
  • People Are Good
  • Always You
  • Never Let Me Go
  • Speak To Me

The duo will also embark on a world tour which coincides with the album’s release, beginning on 23 March through to 11 August. It will be the band’s first tour in over five years, and their 19th tour overall.
