DEPECHE MODE – ” My Cosmos Is Mine “

Posted: March 12, 2023 in MUSIC

Depeche Mode are releasing a new album, “Memento Mori”, on March 24th via Columbia Records. Now they have shared the album’s second single, the atmospheric and ghostly slow-burner “My Cosmos Is Mine.”

Previously Depeche Mode had shared “Memento Mori’s” first single, “Ghosts Again,” via an Anton Corbijn-directed video. Then they were the musical guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, in which they performed “Ghosts Again” and their classic single “Personal Jesus.”

“Memento Mori” will be the first Depeche Mode album to be released since the death of the band’s Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher, who passed away in May at age 60. It was announced last October.

Fletcher did work on the album before his death. “Memento Mori” will be the band’s 15th studio album and the follow-up to 2017’s “Spirit”. The band also annonuced the “Memento Mori” tour will be the band’s first tour in five years and the band’s 19th tour overall. With Fletcher’s passing, that makes the official lineup for Depeche Mode as Dave Gahan and Martin Gore.

Gore had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “We started work on this project early in the pandemic, and its themes were directly inspired by that time. 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.”

Gahan added: “Fletch would have loved this album. We’re really looking forward to sharing it with you soon.”
