Song: Wrong
Artist: Depeche Mode
Album: Sounds of the Universe

I was a big fan of Depeche Mode’s last album, 2006’s “Playing the Angel.” I’m not a huge fan of the band, have consistently liked singles they have, including some of their early 80’s material, but never went over-the-moon crazy for them like many of their über-fans seem to be. But regardless, the band has remained relevant throughout many changes to the business and while they don’t have pop hits like U2 still have, I think they are still making challenging worth-wild music.

“Wrong” is the first single from their upcoming twelfth studio album, “Sounds of the Universe.” I haven’t heard anything but the single, but it sounds much like the dark electronica from “Angel” as well as lead Dave Gahan’s recent solo record “Hourglass.” (Which I also liked quite a bit.) Looking forward to hearing the rest of the album as I think “Wrong” is way right. And check out the video below… it’s crazy!

I wasn't sure about this song at first but now i'm kind of addicted to it.
