    Depeche Mode will return next year with a brand new album called Memento Mori. What’s more, they’ve announced a massive world tour that’ll see them play more than 20 different countries across North America and Europe in 2023.

    Due out in March 2023, Memento Mori marks Depeche Mode’s 15th album to date and first since the passing of founding member Andy Fletcher. “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time,” Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore explained in a statement. “After Fletch’s passing, we decided to continue as we’re sure this is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning.”

    “Fletch would have loved this album,” Dave Gahan added. “We’re really looking forward to sharing it with you soon, and we can’t wait to present it to you live at the shows next year.”
