Depeche Mode - New Life


On this date in 1981, Depeche Mode released their second single, "New Life". It was backed by "Shout". The A side appeared on their debut album, Speak & Spell. The B side was left off but added as a bonus track when the album was reissued on CD. The single reached the #11 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Essex, England new wave band still records and performs but they are a trio since Alan Wilder left the band in 1995.
