Depeche Mode have proclaimed via a Girls Aloud-style press conference in Paris that they will be doing several things in 2013; specifically a new LP and world tour.

No one said much about the long player as regards a title or release date, but Slicing Up Eyeballs cites the band’s Martin Gore as characterising it thus: “It’s got a bit of a feel of ‘Violator’ on some of the songs and a feel of ‘Songs Of Faith And Devotion’ on other songs. It’s a bit of a hybrid of those two for me”.

The band also premiered a mysterious new ‘in-studio collage’, aka a track SUE says may or may not be called ‘Angel Of Love’.

Listen to it now:

The tour, meanwhile, will feature a single British date at London’s O2 Arena on 28 May. The band will also headline various European festivals, appearing at Sweden’s Peace & Love, Belgium’s Rock Werchter, Spain’s Bilbao BBK and Portugal’s Optimus Alive.
