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.”

Word spread Monday that Depeche Mode‘s first single titled “Heaven” from the forthcoming album Delta Machine would make its radio debut this Thursday. In a surprise move, the song was world premiered this morning by KROQ Los Angeles morning show hosts Kevin & Bean.

Buzz on the new material has been strong with chief songwriter Martin Gore stating that the new album back to the band’s glory days. “It’s got a bit of a feel of Violator on some of the songs and a feel of Songs of Faith and Devotion on other songs,” said Gore. “It’s a bit of a hybrid of those two for me.”

  • Depeche Mode to Debut Video for First Single ‘Heaven’ on VEVO Next Friday, February 1st

    (Columbia Records; New York, NY; January 24, 2013) – Depeche Mode have announced they will release their highly anticipated 13th studio album, entitled Delta Machine, on March 26th worldwide via Columbia Records. The album, recorded over the last year in Santa Barbara, California and New York City, was produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by Flood.

    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.”

    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 realize 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.”
