Explanations later, but the real purpose of this post is to present to you a new music video, from one of Walski’s favorite music groups. It’s from their latest album released just a few days ago (April 20th in Europe, and North America a day later).
There is another reason for featuring Depeche Mode, but Walski will keep mum about it for now. The “mystery” will unfold all by itself in due time.
(the release of SOTU, and more DM, in the full post)
You may have figured out by now that SOTU is the acronym for Depeche Mode’s latest album, Sounds Of The Universe. If you haven’t, well, now you know. SOTU is DM’s 12th full album, released 5 years after their previous album, Playing the Angel.
The album contains 13 tracks, one of them being Wrong, which was released earlier this month (on April 6th) as the album’s first single.
He’s not sure if the album is available in Malaysia yet (it’s already available in Singapore), but the version that Walski would love to get his grubby hands on is the Deluxe Box Set edition. That baby contains all kinds of goodies, including 5 bonus tracks, a DVD, and loads of other stuff. Yumm…
Track list of the album proper:
- In Chains
- Hole To Feed
- Fragile Tension
- Little Soul
- In Sympathy
- Come Back
- Miles Away / The Truth Is
Bonus tracks (which to Walski’s knowledge is only available in the box set edition):
- The Sun And The Moon And The Stars
- Oh Well (released as a B side to Wrong)
Depeche Mode will be supporting the release of this album with a tour, aptly called Tour Of The Universe 2009. For right now, the Universe is limited to North America and Europe, as the published dates so far (between May 6 and February 6, 2010) are only for those two world areas. Walski’s seen them live twice before, in New Orleans the first time (sometime in the 80’s) and more recently, a few years back, in Singapore. Fat chance we’ll ever get to see them in Kuala Lumpur, Walski thinks.
As for the other thing that Walski mentioned… well, you folks will just have to wait. Let’s just say that it’s a secret project of disarseterous proportions…
