Depeche Mode certainly is no stranger to box sets. Today, they have announced another called MODE which is a comprehensive collection of the bands work.
The box set is described as follows:
MODE is a comprehensive collection of the band’s work to date – comprised of all 14 studio albums plus additional non-album material — from 2017’s Spirit back to DM’s debut album Speak & Spell. In line with DM’s signature aesthetic, the numbered, limited-edition set is housed in an elegant and minimalist black cube, with each disc similarly enclosed in a black, heavyweight card wallet. The albums’ original covers have been re-interpreted in uniform black-on-black designs exclusive to this box set, and four additional bonus discs provide a chronological collection of non-album singles, b-sides and bonus tracks. Accompanying the audio content is a 228 page, gilt-edged book containing all of Depeche Mode’s lyrics, compiled together for the first time, highlighting their collective visceral power and impact.
Reflecting on the set’s content and design, the band commented, “With everything together in this all-black design it feels like a modern reflection of who we are and where we’ve come from. The set couldn’t be more Depeche Mode.”
MODE will be released on November 22 and contains all 14 of Depeche Mode’s original studio albums presented in exclusive black card sleeves with re-interpreted, all-black artwork.
