After announcing earlier this week that new single “Heaven” is set for release on February 5, electro-rock pioneers Depeche Mode have revealed Delta Machine as the title of their long-awaited 13th studio full-length, due to hit retailers on March 26.

A deluxe version of the album will contain a second disc with an additional four tunes as well as a 28-page hardcover book featuring photos by Anton Corbijn. (see song titles below).

According to a statement on the band’s website, Delta Machine was recorded over the past year in Santa Barbara, CA (home to the band’s main songwriter, Martin Gore) and New York City, produced by Ben Hillier and mixed by long-time DM associate Flood.

“Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern,” Gore said in the announcement. “I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it.”

“With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we’ll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound,” offered Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan. “Delta Machine is no different, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear it.”

 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year for the synth-powered legends, as Depeche Mode is scheduled to embark on an extensive world tour which kicks off May 7th in Tel Aviv, Israel. North American dates are expected to be revealed in the near future.
