Video: Depeche Mode ‘Heaven’ In The Studio
Today NPR premiered an in-studio video of Depeche Mode performing ‘Heaven’, the debut single from the forthcoming 13th studio album titled ‘Delta Machine’.
Says Dave: “It feels like putting on a pair of boots that I’ve worn for years, that I love. As soon as Martin played me the demo, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. It was one of those songs that I heard and I immediately knew that I wanted to perform it live in the studio. I could hear the sort of gospel backing that Martin ended up actually doing himself. With a song like ‘Heaven’, we were very conscious about not over-working the musical elements so they distracted from the vocal, and the strength of the vocal and the vocal melodies.”
