Rock band Depeche Mode has announced they will release their highly anticipated 13th studio album, entitled 'Delta Machine', on March 26 worldwide via Columbia Records.

The album, recorded over the past year in Santa Barbara, California and New York City, was produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by Flood.

The video for the first single Heaven can be viewed here:

Alongside a standard CD format, Depeche Mode will release Delta Machine in an exclusive Deluxe Edition with four additional new tracks and accompanied by a 28-page hardcover book including photos by long-time artistic collaborator Anton Corbijn

Guitarist Martin Gore said of the release, “Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern. I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it.”

Singer Dave Gahan added, “With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realise the album is beginning to sound too normal, we’ll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. Delta Machine is no different, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear it.”

The tracklisting for Delta Machine is as follows:
