Depeche Mode are back; Martin Gore and Dave Gahan's first new music since the sudden 2022 passing of bandmate Andy Fletcher with the song Ghosts Again is a poignant paean to loss and hope. 

Featuring a tradermark Martin Gore guitar hook and Gahan croon, it's a track the Essex icons are proud to return with. “It’s not often that we record a song that I just don’t get sick of listening to," said Gahan "I’m excited to be able to share it.”

Ghosts Again is the first track from 15th studio album Momento Mori, released 24 March 2023.
