Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan has teamed up with long time musical partner Soulsavers (Rich Machin) to release a new album next month, titled “Imposter. According to the announcement, the album will feature Dave taking “listeners on a personal journey of 12 metic”ulously chosen reimagined songs from across genres and time periods, including selections from Neil Young, Bob Dylan, PJ Harvey, Charlie Chaplin, Cat Power and Mark Lanegan, amongst others.”
Gahan shares: “When I listen to other people’s voices and songs-more importantly the way they sing them and interpret the words-I feel at home. I identify with it. It comforts me more than anything else. There’s not one performer on the record who I haven’t been moved by. I know we made something special, and I hope other people feel that and it takes them on a little kind of trip-especially people who love music and have for years.”
Gahan will be releasing the first song from the album, a take on Cat Power’s “Metal Heart”, on October 8th. Imposter it set to be released on November 12th.
