After more than three decades together, synth-pop pioneers Depeche Mode are excited as ever to unveil new music.

On March 26, the band will release their eleventh studio full-length, Delta Machine. Ahead of the album’s release, Depeche Mode will webcast their Live on Letterman performance from New York’s historic Ed Sullivan Theater on Monday, March 11 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT via CBS.com. For those unable to catch it during its first airing, the entire performance will be repeated multiple times immediately following the live broadcast. Shortly thereafter, the set will be made available on-demand via VEVO.

During a recent interview, frontman Dave Gahan joked with KROQ’s Kevin & Bean about the electronic band’s storied 32-year history. “We’ve been that band that nobody understood, then we’ve been the band that everybody tried to imitate, and suddenly we were the band that everybody says, ‘oh we were influenced by.’”

During a recent interview, Depeche Mode lead singer Dave Gahan revealed that vocalist Frank Ocean has collaborated with the band’s main songwriterMartin Gore.

“We were in the studio in New York, and we were filming and recording some live tracks toward the end of the session. I was singing, Martin [Gore] on guitar, a few of the other guys,” Gahan told Entertainment Weekly about a session for Depeche Mode’s forthcoming new album, Delta Machine.

Suddenly in the doorway, I sensed this presence, and I realized there was this guy standing there just watching,” Gahan continued. “An assistant came up to me in between songs and said, ‘Do you mind? Frank Ocean is here working in another studio and really wants to meet you guys.’ I wouldn’t have thought he would have even known who we are, but it turns out he’s a big fan.”
