Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan Featured on Soulsavers’ ‘Longest Day’
Depeche Mode singer Dave Gahan is lending his vocals to a new Soulsavers song called ‘Longest Day.’ The track is taken from the British eletronica duo’s forthcoming album, ‘The Light The Dead See’, which drops May 22.
‘Longest Day’ will be released as a single on April 2 and re-released on a 7″ vinyl for Record Store Day on April 21. The track isn’t the only Soulsavers song Gahan is featured on, as the New Wave icon makes guest appearances all throughout ‘The Light the Dead See.’
This continues the tradition of Soulsavers tapping guest singers for their records. Spain vocalist Josh Haden was featured on the group’s debut album, 2003′s ‘Tough Guys Don’t Dance,’ and Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan handled vocal duties on ‘It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land’ and ‘Broken.’
According to NME, Gahan wants to collaborate with Soulsavers on another album and go on the road with them.
Depeche Mode are hitting the studio this month to start work on their 13th studio album. Gahan has stated in the past that the band has about 20 songs written for the new record, which would be the follow-up to 2009′s ‘Sounds of the Universe.’ Producer Ben Hillier will once again be at the helm, with Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore serving as co-producer.
