Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore to release first solo album in over a decade
Martin Gore, founder of the English electronic music trio Depeche Mode, has announced plans to release his first solo record in over ten years. Titled MG, the LP will feature 16 instrumental tracks. “Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least five days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun,” Gore said about the album, which he recorded at his Santa Barbara home studio in 2013. Gore’s goal was to keep the sound “very electronic, very filmic” and to endow it with “an almost sci-fi like quality.”
The album is scheduled for release April 28 via Mute Records. The first single, “Europa Hymn,” is already out on Mute Records’ SoundCloud page, offering listeners a taste of the cinematic, delicate and minimal sound qualities that MG aims to capture.
