Depeche Mode - "Heaven"

Last week, Depeche Mode announced a forthcoming new album called Delta Machine, and today they’re giving us its first single. “Heaven” is a moany, turgid electro ballad, and it’s closer to a lighters-up arena ballad than the dark, playful things that even the band’s last few albums have brought. It doesn’t exactly fill me with hope about Delta Machine, but your mileage may vary. Listen to it at KROQ.

Delta Machine is out 3/26 on Columbia.

    • Go to for it. KROQ isn’t the sharing type with all of their streams, so whenever they have premieres using Vimeo, access is denied to them outside of their site.

  2. Blah, moany is right. He’s oversinging again, which ruined parts of Playing the Angel for me. I hope he dials it down on the rest of the album.

  3. I really feel they’re making music by numbers as of lately.

  4. Thomas Fehlmann did a remix for this, that’s really all I care about at this point.

  5. Decent. Not particularly exciting or New. But it’s DM, you know what you are going to get.

  6. Sigh. Agreed on the ‘over signing’ comment. Everything sounds forced and uncomfortable.
