Depeche Mode has revealed two strikingly different visual aspects of “My Favourite Stranger,” another standout from its universally acclaimed Memento Mori (Columbia Records), hailed by Allmusic for its “pulsing menace” that “builds to discomfiting yet alluring levels of anxiety.” First is the Anton Corbijn-directed official music video that premiered September 21, taking viewers on a journey to an unknown destination alongside an enigmatic figure with a surprising secret. Next up is today’s unveiling of “My Favourite Stranger (Vinegar Hill Sessions),” the third in a series of intimate and unique pared back arrangements of Memento Mori tracks recorded live at Brooklyn’s Vinegar Hill studios.

On the live front, having kicked off the third leg of the Memento Mori World Tour with a trio of shows at Mexico City’s Foro Sol stadium, Depeche Mode returns to the U.S. tomorrow, September 29, at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. Following a sold out spring run described as “a death-defying evening” (Los Angeles Times) and “a beautiful, life-affirming display of a band that, 43 years in, still has so much left to give” (Chicago Sun-Times), the tour’s second trek through North America will visit arenas across the continent before wrapping with a mid-December four-night stand in Los Angeles. See below for a full list of dates.

Having sold more than 100 million records and played to more than 35 million fans worldwide, Depeche Mode remains an ever-evolving and singularly influential musical force. Depeche Mode released its critically acclaimed 15th studio album, Memento Mori, on March 24, 2023 alongside the launch of the Memento Mori World Tour, which has since played to well over two million fans and has been extended into 2024 due to overwhelming demand. An indelible inspiration to fans, critics and artists alike, Depeche Mode continues to forge ahead, with the Memento Mori album and tour representing the opening of the newest chapter of a peerless and ongoing legacy.
