Mode Officially In The Studio Now
Or rather, it is now official that Ben Hillier is in the studio, and that Depeche Mode are with him. Go figure! Ben’s UK based management updated the producer’s bio with this tiny little line: [Ben’s] now back in the production chair for Depeche Mode following their last collaboration on ‘Playing The Angel’ album.
Also Ferg Peterkin’s involvement (previously reported on this very site) was confirmed by his management, stating simply that “[Ferg is] currently Stateside with producer Ben Hillier, […] engineering the new Depeche Mode album.”
Mode begun the second set of sessions for the upcoming album last week, this time in New York. Work begun May 5th in California.
