Depeche Mode Single, “Where’s The Revolution” Released

 

Depeche Mode have confirmed a release date for their album ‘Spirit’, as well as releasing a new single ‘Where’s The Revolution’.

The follow up to ‘Delta Machine’ will be released on 17 March,  and was produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. The lead single, and first taster of new music in four years, will drop this week with ‘Where’s The Revolution’ premiering on Friday.

“We’re exceptionally proud of ‘Spirit’’s sound and energy, and we’re excited to get back on tour to share it with our fans around the world,” said frontman Dave Gahan when they announced the record along with a lengthy tour last year.

 

Pulp Frontman Jarvis Cocker Returns With Room 29

Room 29 is a collaboration between the Pulp frontman and eccentric Canadian composer, inspired by the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles.
What if a hotelroom could “sing” of the life stories and events it had witnessed? Intrigued by that question, Canadian pianist and composer Chilly Gonzales and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cover conjure up the lifes of previous occupants of Hollywood’s Chateau Hotel Marmont. Many infamous and famous guests like actress Jean Harlow or Mark Twain’s daughter Clara inhabited the hotel’s room 29. Thus, the Deutsche Grammophon album appears as a 21st-century song cycle about glittering fantasy and often bleak reality of Hollywood and at the same time as metaphor for a place within each of us, home to our deepest desires and fantasies.  In music folklore the hotel is very famous – Jim Morrison of The Doors nearly fell out of a window, Led Zeppelin’s Jon Bonham rode a motorbike through the foyer and comedy actor John Belushi died of a drug overdose in one of its ‘bungalows’. 

So be careful when visiting.  Their album is due out on 17 March.

‘Trainspotting 2’ Soundtrack Revealed

The tracklisting for the upcoming ‘T2: Trainspotting‘ soundtrack has been confirmed.

After the initial trailer was released, the clip revealed that Wolf Alice’s track ‘Silk’ would be featured on the soundtrack. Now, the full list of songs have been confirmed following rumours earlier this week.

The classic ‘Lust For Life’ by Iggy Pop from the original soundtrack has been given a violent reboot courtesy of The Prodigy, while Underworld‘s ‘Born Slippy’ has been reimagined as ‘Slow Slippy’ also.

That respect for the old-school also comes by including the likes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Blondie, Queen, Run DMC and The Clash.

As well as the previously revealed Wolf Alice, Fat White Family also bring a kick of modern indie to the fore – while Mercury winners and Scotland’s own Young Fathers have penned new track ‘Only God Knows’ among the three songs they’ve contributed.

The soundtrack will be released physically and digitally on January 27 via Polydor.

1. Iggy Pop – ‘Lust for Life’ (The Prodigy Remix)
2. High Contrast – ‘Shotgun Mouthwash’
3. Wolf Alice – ‘Silk’
