New Depeche Mode – “Come Back”

“Come Back” isn’t as immediately compelling (or accusatory) as our first taste of Sounds Of The Universe, but the drifting, downcast song offers a nice contrast to “Wrong“‘s throttled industrial-line angst. What we have here is the band in a more sensitive Mode: Not quite on the same part of the sensitivity meter as “Somebody,” but Dave is asking for the loved one to, please, “Come Back.” You could read it as a “Comeback,” too, if you wanted, because these songs are pretty good DM songs. Also, they’ve affixed venues to their North American tour itinerary:
