The LP is produced by Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford.
It's a follow-up to their previous studio album, Delta Machine, which came out in 2013. It will also follow on the heels of their Video Singles Collection, a career-spanning anthology of music videos that's due out next month. Spirit, their 14th studio album, is produced by James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco, with additional contributions from Berlin-based producer Matrixxman. Depeche Mode will kick off their Global Spirit tour next May, a 32-show run of 21 different stadium venues, to coincide with the release.
Listen to a preview of album material from a recent press conference.
Columbia Records will release Spirit in the spring of 2017.
