Depeche Mode 'Peace' Free Music Video

Depeche Mode are a legendary band whose electronic rock music has been at the fore of its genre for almost twenty years. They are one of the most successful, critically-acclaimed and long lived bands to have been created in the 1980s and during their reign they have had forty-five songs in the UK charts and album and single sales in excess of 100 million. Having been nominated for Grammy Music Awards and always topping critic's choice lists, the band have simply moved from strength to strength, culminating in their newest album 'Sounds of the Universe'.

'Sounds of the Universe' was released earlier this year and is Depeche Mode's twelfth full length studio album. Upon release, the album generally got very positive responses from both critics and fans alike with many stating that the album is "a grower". And so, 'Sounds of the Universe', despite a first single entry of number 24, went straight in at number two in the UK album charts, the highest album from Depeche Mode since their album 'Ultra' in 1997. The album contains thirteen tracks, one of which is the single 'Peace' which is to be released in June 2009.

Free Music Video - Depeche Mode 'Peace'

'Peace' is the band's second single from 'Sounds of the Universe' and is their 47th studio single overall. The song is beautiful, soft and spiritual, and Depeche Mode writer Martin Gore has even commented that he thinks the song is one of the best he has ever written; many agree. However, although the lyrics are quite deep and thoughtful, the backing track is powerful and typically Depeche Mode in that it has an incredibly distinct electro beat and is experimental with different sounds and rhythms. Similarly to the single 'Peace', the rest of the album is also typically Depeche Mode as it is electro-influenced - but combines this with a range of interesting and thought-provoking lyrics.

The album 'Sounds of the Universe' is a stunning creation, and the album's box set, available via Free Music UK, is a fantastic purchase for any fan and would make a great gift for any Depeche Mode lover. It comprises of a deluxe box setting and 4 discs – three CDs and one DVD – and 2 books. The three CDs are the album, bonus songs on a disc and then remixes, including 14 exclusive demo's. The DVD is a fascinating insight into the world of Depeche Mode as it features three films. The first is a behind-the-scenes documentary about the recording of the album, a conversation with the band discussing recording techniques which is interspersed with personal archive footage of album sessions, and a short film featuring track by track discussion with the band. The DVD also includes a promotional video for the single 'Wrong' as well as four songs filmed live in the studio. The two accompanying books feature lyrics from 'Sounds of the Universe' accompanied by photography of the band and also exclusive photography by Daniel Miller, Ben Hillier, Luke Smith and Ferg Peter.

Whether you are a fan desperate for the Depeche Mode box set or simply an electro fan looking for something new to get in to, 'Sounds of the Universe' is definitely a must have purchase.
