Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore and Mute Records Teasing Upcoming Mystery Release

Martin Gore…ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAMER Martin Gore, that is…what do you have up your sleeve? Something is afoot. Let’s count the clues:

Exhibit A: 55-song playlist. Gore’s Facebook page detailed a collection of Gore’s previous solo work and collaborations, and the cryptic message “Watch this space…”

Exhibit B: Mute Records’  Twitter tease of a stylised portrait of Martin’s face. Perhaps they’re just celebrating his beauty! But it’s also likely that, judging from the second clue, that something will be released on the 17 of November.

Fans are speculating on the material base on the image, which vaguely resembles Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album cover. A nod from one genius to another? A mugshot from the fifth dimension? A new natal chart revelation? A new solo album (most likely, but who knows)?

Gore and Depeche Mode bandmates Dave Gahan, Andy Fletcher, Alan Wilder, and Vince Clarke were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last weekend, a long-awaited and well-deserved feat. Though Depeche Mode left longtime label Mute in 2012 for Columbia Records, Martin Gore’s solo work remains linked to Mute.

Whatever it is, they’re keeping mum and we can only speculate for now. Fingers crossed.
