New Music From Depeche Mode – ‘Ghosts Again’

Depeche Mode today shared the video for Ghosts Again, from their upcoming album, Memento Mori, which will be released March 24 via Columbia Records.

Ghosts Again has been visually interpreted by longtime Depeche Mode collaborator and Memento Mori album cover and artwork designer Anton Corbijn. Echoes of Bergman, anyone?

Memento Mori is Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album and its first as a two-piece lineup of Gahan and Gore, following co-founder Andrew “Fletch” Fletcher’s death in 2022.

Produced by James Ford, with additional production work by Marta Salogni, Memento Mori’s gestation took place during the early stages of the Covid pandemic, resulting in themes inspired directly by that period. The band says that the album’s 12 tracks chart a vast expanse of moods and textures, running the gamut from paranoia and obsession to catharsis and joy.

  1. the Depeche Mode albums since Song’s of Faith and Devotion were so lame that we struggle between keeping on bashing them and finding something nice to say on what will probably their last work. Frankly speaking, I don’t get that spark anymore with DM.

    1. They lost me a bit after Exciter, but you drew the line waaayyy back in time. Different strokes, I suppose. I rank Ultra as their peak.

  2. Not bad! I thought they weren’t very good after how great Violator was and after Alan Wilder left, but maybe there’s still hope.

  3. This is a solid track and I’m hopeful they\ve gone back to their club/dance roots. I haven’t liked anything they’ve put out since Playing the Angel. So far so good!

  4. Haven’t listened to them much since the early days but they’ve been so successful and brought so much joy to so many people that they can do whatever they want as far as I’m concerned. I think this might be one of those songs that initially sounds like it doesn’t have a hook, but then you wake up the next day after listening to it and it’s in your head.

    Also, I’ll always be gobsmacked that Martin Gore bought my Firstman SQ-1 off E-Bay.

  5. DM has been and still is a pleasure to listen to. It’s simply so amazing that they were able to move on after losing two band members and keep making music that is very unique. They’ve always stood out from the crowd in a positive way.
