Depeche Mode new album
Depeche Mode new album

Depeche Mode have confirmed the release date of their eagerly anticipated new album, Memento Mori, which will be released March 24 via Columbia Records.

Memento Mori’s arrival is heralded by today’s release of first single Ghosts Again. Having been stealthily previewed in Berlin in October at the Memento Mori launch event, Ghosts Again is available now across digital platforms.

“To me, Ghosts Again just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy,” says Dave Gahan. Martin Gore adds: “It’s not often that we record a song that I just don’t get sick of listening to – I’m excited to be able to share it.”

Ghosts Again has been visually interpreted by longtime Depeche Mode collaborator and Memento Mori album cover and artwork designer Anton Corbijn. 


Memento Mori is Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album and its first as a two-piece lineup of Gahan and Gore, following co-founder Andrew “Fletch” Fletcher’s tragic passing in 2022.

Produced by James Ford, with additional production work by Marta Salogni, Memento Mori‘s gestation took place during the early stages of the Covid pandemic, resulting in themes inspired directly by that period.

The complete track listing for Memento Mori is:

My Cosmos Is Mine
Wagging Tongue
Ghosts Again
Don’t Say You Love Me
My Favourite Stranger
Soul With Me
Caroline’s Monkey
Before We Drown
People Are Good
Always You
Never Let Me Go
Speak To Me

The Memento Mori Tour will coincide with the album’s release. The Live Nation-presented tour — Depeche Mode’s first in over five years and 19th overall — kicks off March 23rd with a special, limited series of North American arena dates featuring stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Chicago’s United Center, Los Angeles’ Kia Forum and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, among others.

The band will then begin their European stadium tour on May 16th, including dates at the Stade de France in Paris, Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, Milan’s San Siro Stadium, and London’s Twickenham Stadium. Due to popular demand, shows have been added in several markets —  for further information, please go to
