Vince Clarke is set to release his first-ever solo album, ‘Songs Of Silence’, this November. 

The synth-pop icon, who has scored countless hits with Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure, returns this autumn with a brand new, 10-track instrumental collection.

Preceded by the first single, The Lamentations Of Jeremiah, the LP has been entirely composed using Eurorack – a modular synthesiser format originally specified in 1995 by Doepfer Musikelektronik and famed for its limitless configurations.

“I could have gone on forever, I could have not stopped,” says the musician. “I was enjoying the process so much and wasn’t thinking about anyone else hearing it. 

“But hearing it develop in my studio, in my head, learning new tricks – that’s been the best thing about this. I was in a state of shock, actually, when Mute said they wanted to release this album.”

The majority of the album was recorded in his home studio in New York, originally conceived as a distraction during the pandemic, with Clarke describing the tracks as “having a sense of sadness, of things going bad, things crumbling”.

‘Songs Of Silence’ is out November 17 on Mute and available to pre-order now
