New Instrumental Album from Depeche Mode's Martin Gore / First Solo Effort in 12 Years

MG is an evocative 16-track electronic instrumental album from songwriter and founding Depeche Mode member Martin Gore. Written and produced by Gore, work began on MG following the final dates of Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine tour in March 2013 at Gore’s home studio in Santa Barbara. An entire instrumental album had been in his thoughts for some time, particularly since he has been writing instrumentals for Depeche Mode since 1981.

“I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like quality,” Martin explains. “Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least 5 days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.”

MG is a soundtrack to an emotional and mysterious film of your own design. From the Angelo Badalmenti–like atmosphere of "Elk" to the industrial electro swagger of "Brink," it landscapes a unique and arresting vision. After finishing recording MG, Martin asked Q to mix it which seemed a perfectly natural choice as he previously mixed VCMG, Gore and Vince Clarke’s 2012 album, SSSS.

Explaining the decision to release the album under the acronym, MG, Gore says, “As the album is very electronic and has no vocals, I felt it deserved another persona so decided to carry on the MG concept from the VCMG album.” MG showcases another side to this multi-talented musician. “As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words,” Martin admits. “Especially when they are juxtaposed in the right way with chords and melody. I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”

As one of the founding members of Depeche Mode, his work now spans over three decades with combined sales of over 100 million records worldwide. MG sees Martin returning to his solo career for the first time since 2003’s Counterfeit2.
