Alan Wilder & Vince Clarke Reunite In Depeche Mode’s New Remix Album


Remixes 2: 81-11 (Out June 7)

The much-beloved ’80s iconic band [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Depeche Mode[/lastfm] will be releasing a new remix collection in June via Mute Records.  It not only includes classic mixes from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]M83[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]UNKLE[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Trentemøller[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dan The Automator[/lastfm], but features rare contributions by ex-members Vince Clarke ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Yazoo[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Assembly[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Erasure[/lastfm]) and Alan Wilder ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Recoil[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nitzer Ebb[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Curve[/lastfm]). Find out which tracks the two former DM boys remixed, plus the classic albums handpicked for their remix anthology entitled Remixes 81-04.

The 32-track album will include remixes of tracks from their 1981 debut Speak And Spell through to 2009’s Sounds Of The Universe. Fans will also get treated to two reworkings of classic anthems “Behind the Wheel” and “In Chains” by AlanWilder and Vince Clarke. While we would have absolutely loved more than two remixes, it’s pretty great the three original members of the band (Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, and Andrew Fletcher) even got them to rework any songs considering their differences while in Depeche Mode in the early ’80s.

Check out the entire tracklist below. Remixes 2: 81-11 hits stores in the UK on June 6th via Mute, with a U.S. release date to follow shortly.
