Next week, the fourth full length from UK duo Soulsavers, The Light The Dead See, will arrive via V2. This is easily Rich Machin and Ian Glover’s most anticipated release, thanks to a full album’s worth of guest vocals from Depeche Mode’s David Gahan.
As this promo clip indicates, a one-off contribution evolved into a full-blown collaboration thanks to DM’s extended hiatus following the Sounds of the Universe tour:
Gahan’s voice is dramatic and powerful as ever, but rather than cloaked in gloomy synthesizers it’s swept up in a symphony of strings, soulful backing vocals, strummed acoustic guitars and live percussion. It’s a decidedly grown up turn for the recently turned 50 frontman. Close the blinds, pour yourself a drink and check out the full album stream:
