It will have about 12 tracks, including such titles as «Wrong», «Peace Will Come to Me», «Hole to Feed», «Comeback» and «In Chains». Though the band is increasingly fond of using guitars, the new CD may see a return to the DM's original analog synth roots — at least on a few tracks.
This week Depeche Mode are filming the video for the first single, «Wrong», with director Patrick Daughters (he known by his videos for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Feist, Beck, Interpol, The Shins)

|«Live in Dresden»|
New Camouflage «Live in Dresden» will out as 2DVD + CD on January 23rd, 2009 via SPV. Almost 6 hours of material on 2DVDs and 1CD! The audio CD and first DVD contain a live recording of a concert which the band performed at Dresden's Reithalle. It's characteristic of the band that this concert didn’t turn into a pure «greatest hits» event, but contains, along with their most popular hits, selected highlights from 25 years of band history, such as «You Turn» or «The Perfect Key», which stylishly complement the overall picture and impressively document that Camouflage don’t just tell their story but continue to live intensely. Camouflage were supported on guitar by Volker Hinkel (Fool’s Garden), who also played the guitars on their albums, «Sensor» and Relocated», and on drums by Jochen Schmalbach, who had been on board during the Sensor Tour 2003 and was also responsible for the mix on «Relocated». Their as much unpretentious as powerful performance is enhanced by the second DVD, which contains not only all the band’s video clips in chronological order, but also rare unplugged clips and a number of TV appearances which show quite plainly the changes the band has gone through during the past two decades. A one-hour documentary about their Russian Tour in 2006 rounds off the picture and allows their fans a glimpse behind the curtains, giving impressions of life on the road and allowing insights into their lives.Tracklisting:
Technical information: DVD 9; PAL 16:9 & 4:3; Deutsch/English; 5.1 Dolby Digital / 5.1 DTS / PCM Stereo.
