"We've probably got 20 songs demoed. Some of the songs are in really good shape, some need some work, but we're definitely on track. We have a deadline of the end of November, and there's no reason we why we won't meet that at the rate we're going". He said.
Ben Hillier and Christoffer Berg are co-producing the new material. Berg has previously worked with The Knife and Fever Ray. "He's a great musician and has a lot of fantastic ideas," said Gahan. "He's not afraid to stand up and say, 'I got an idea.' I like that. It's quite intimidating working with a band like ours because you have certain expectations of how it is. A lot are true and some aren't. Martin and I are open to other people's ideas."
Gahan also says that "There are already plans in place to be touring next year."
