Depeche Mode and Spoon fans have waited years for a new LP from either band — and both groups’ patience finally pays off this week.

Spirit, Depeche Mode’s first release since 2013’s Delta Machine, arrives today (March 17) after an extended buildup that included the release of first single “Where’s the Revolution” as well as the announcement of a world tour — including a North American leg. As singer Dave Gahan told Billboard, fans can expect a socially aware set from the veteran band.

“A lot of change, a lot of ‘Really?’-type stuff happening. But it’s been going all around the world, and this separatism, ‘I’ve got to keep mine, and get out of my way,’ and all the stuff we’ve been hearing for years about the one percent,” Gahan said regarding the climate surrounding Spirit‘s creation. “It’s an album that is reflecting a sign of the times. And it comes across in a very social way. I don’t think of songs in a political way.”

Meanwhile, Spoon’s new Hot Thoughts LP ends a three-year drought between full-length efforts dating back to 2014’s They Want My Soul. Led off by the title track as the first pre-release single, the album will also be supported by a tour. Reflecting on the record for Consequence of Sound, frontman Britt Daniel suggested it serves as an example of how far they’ve come — and a natural progression in their creative journey.

“I think I would be surprised if we were sitting on the release date of our first record and somehow somebody played me this album. I would be very surprised,” said Daniel. “But sitting where I am now, it feels very natural. It seems like where we’ve been meaning to go.”
