Depeche Mode will reissue all their singles across a series of 12" album themed box sets

Depeche Mode have announced a new singles reissue series.

All of their singles will be made newly available across a series of 12" box set releases, with each box set to be themed around a different Depeche Mode album, containing all of the singles that were released from each record.

All of the music on the reissues has been remastered from the original tapes and cut at Abbey Road, featuring box set artwork inspired by the original covers, as well as replica single artwork.

"Our 12" singles have always been incredibly important to the band," Depeche Mode said announcing the releases. "It's great to be able to re-share these songs with old and new fans in the way they were originally intended to be experienced. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do."

The reissue series will kick off on August 31 with the release of the first two editions: Speak & Spell | The 12" Singles and A Broken Frame | The 12" Singles. All proceeds from the sale of the box sets will got to non-profit organisation Water, which is focused on bringing clean water to people around the world.
