It's about rehashing old ideas and trying to make some money out of it, basically.

We've been fortunate to be able to make music as Depeche Mode for 20 years.

We were very lucky and have been fortunate to be able to record a lot of albums over this period of time, and to still be current and making music.

I'm really proud of the record and I think we've come together really well on it. Sometimes it was a bit of a long process and I wasn't quite sure where it was going -- but you know, towards the end it was starting to take shape and it was really exciting.
