“Memento Mori” represents Depeche Mode’s 15th studio album overall, while Gahan and Gore present the first long player with a two-piece lineup following the tragic death of band co-founder Andrew “Fletch” Fletcher in 2022. Produced by James Ford with assistance from Marta Salogni, “Memento Mori” matured during the early stages of the worldwide Covid pandemic; a period that also had a thematic influence on the songs.
The 12 album tracks bridge a variety of moods and musical textures – from the ominous opener to the denouement at the end, the emotional spectrum spans from paranoia and obsession to psychic liberation and joy, as well as countless emotional overtones.
