Depeche Mode have confirmed plans to hold a press conference in Paris this October.
The band have been working on new material throughout 2012 but have made no official statement on their release plans. It is now expected they will name a 2013 date for the release of new material.
Taking place on October 23rd, the event opens at 1:30pm and will be broadcast live online on the band's official website, with Depeche Mode planning what the press release describes as "an exciting announcement". Stay tuned to depechemode.com for more details.
In an interview earlier this year, Dave Gahan said about the progress of new material: "We've recorded probably close to twenty songs so far, and they're all starting to get in pretty good shape. We're now starting to whittle that down what's gonna be the record."
Björk has announced that she'll be releasing a remix album on November 19th through One Little Indian.
The album, entitled 'bastards', will feature some of the remixes featured in her remix series from earlier in the year and will be available on 12" vinyl, as well as CD and digital download.
"I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes, so I picked a quarter of them for one cd for people who are perhaps not too sassy downloaders or don’t have the time or energy to partake in the hunter-gathering rituals of the internet" said Björk of bastards.
"I was incredibly impressed by how the core of the mixes took Biophilia somewhere else while still keeping its character, and like they so often do when at their best: the remixes gave the songs more beats; legs to dance on! I spent some time editing together not necessarily the best ones but the ones that made the strongest whole."
