Depeche Mode founding member and principal songwriter Martin Gore has announced the release of a new solo album, titled MG. In contrast to his previous solo efforts, 1989’s Counterfeit EP and 2003’s Counterfeit², MG features 16 tracks written and produced entirely by Gore, and mixed by Q (who had previously mixed VCMG’s SSSS, Gore’s 2012 album with one-time Depeche Mode band mate Vince Clarke.
Written during the final dates of Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine tour, Gore says of MG, “I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like quality.”
“As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words,” he continues, addressing the album’s instrumental qualities. “I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”
MG will be released on Mute Records on April 28 and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
