Depeche Mode Singles, Remastered & Reissued on 12″ Vinyl
June 15, 2018
We’re excited to announce that Depeche Mode’s formidable single discography is to be remastered and reissued as 12″ box sets, starting with ‘Speak & Spell | The 12″ Singles’ and ‘A Broken Frame | The 12″ Singles’, released on August 31.
One of the earliest adopters and most enthusiastic proponents of the 12″ vinyl, Depeche Mode’s blend of pop, rock and electronica has always been a great fit for the format’s superior sound and deeper grooves.
“Our 12″ singles have always been incredibly important to the band” say the band. “It’s great to be able to re-share these songs with old and new fans in the way they were originally intended to be experienced. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”
Each box set will feature the singles from each album on audiophile quality 12″ vinyl, remastered from the original tapes and cut at Abbey Road studios. The exterior artwork draws on street art iconography inspired by the original albums while the vinyl sleeves themselves feature the original vinyl single artwork.
