Spirit is the upcoming fourteenth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode! They brought in producer James Ford, whose work with Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys and Simian Mobile Disco had impressed the group, and he helped get the musicians get back on the same page. Other than a few disagreements between Gahan and Gore that Ford settled ("We really had it out," Gahan says with a laugh, "It got pretty emotional"), the recording process went relatively quickly and easily, with sessions in Gore's Santa Barbara studio and in New York.
That sense of worry informed Gahan and his Depeche Mode bandmates while writing their upcoming album, Spirit, which is due out March 17th, as many of the LP's 12 songs deal directly with the general Weltschmerz circulating the planet lately. Although Depeche Mode became megastars to a legion of black-clad, disaffected malcontents with serious songs about universal compassion ("People Are People") and more personal revelations ("Enjoy the Silence," "I Feel You"), the new tracks seem like a different chapter for the group. "I wouldn't call this a political album," Gahan says, "because I don't listen to music in a political way. But it's definitely about humanity, and our place in that."
