Peace will become the next single

April / 28 / 2009:

Depeche Mode have announced that "Peace" will become the next single of their album Sounds of the Universe.

Here is the official press release:

Depeche Mode release their sublime new single "Peace" on June 15th, taken from their acclaimed album "Sounds Of The Universe", which entered the UK charts at No. 2 and went straight to No.1 in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Mexico, Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland with more charts to come.

Written by Martin Gore and produced by Ben Hillier, "Peace" is one of the standout tracks from the brand new record and the follow-up to "Wrong" - the first single from the album. The Sunday Times Culture says, "Peace" is the album's most beautiful song," while The Sun declares, "It's a stunning electro-hymn, a classic."

"Peace" was written back to back with "Little Soul" from the album and their spiritual element forms a cornerstone to the album. "We've had spiritual references on previous records, with this one it's a little more obvious." says Martin. The track features exquisitely placed electronics and cathartic choral refrains from Dave Gahan and Martin Gore.

Depeche Mode's 12th studio album is a dazzling and diverse record. Having spent over 400 combined weeks in the UK charts, the band are ready to enjoy many more weeks at the top with "Sounds Of The Universe".
