The 12 tracks are fully Depeche, with their typical dark electronic multi layered sound, evocative strange lyrics and various life subjects.

«My Cosmos Is Mine»

«The song is about, when dealing with powerlessness, protecting your inner self from the attacks of the world and to, together with your loved ones, prefer to hide somewhere. Which is of course rather shortsighted, because we have to accept the responsibility of our planet's well being, or else no one will be left anymore.»

Martin Gore

«Wagging Tongue»

«It's the first song from both of us, that ever made it onto a record. I felt early on that we really hit the mark here.»

Dave Gahan

«Ghosts Again»

«To me, ‘Ghosts Again’ just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy.»

Dave Gahan

«Soul With Me»

«I really like ‘Soul With Me’ for its interesting confluence of influences. When I was writing it I felt like it almost had a Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys sound mixed with some Kurt Weill chords, but then also an homage to gospel music with its soul-influenced chorus. It's musically a very interesting outlier in our catalogue. And while the words are obviously about death, they're also very tongue in cheek.»

Martin Gore
