Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan to release new solo album

Posted June 27th, 2007 by eric

Depeche Mode frontman, Dave Gahan, is set to release his second solo album, entitled Hourglass this October. It’s the follow-up to 2003’s respectable offering, Paper Monsters, which proved that Gahan could actually write a tune without Martin Gore’s ever-presence.

Gahan on the new record:

“We were very aware of the importance of keeping urgency in the sound and a feeling of spontaneity. We didn’t want to get bogged down in trying to make everything sound perfect. You want to keep the rough edges.”
