Dave Gahan, frontman for Depeche Mode, set to release covers album
Depeche Mode’s frontman, Dave Gahan (aka Rich Machin), will soon be releasing an album filled with covers. The album titled ‘Imposters’ will release on November 12th and include covers of songs by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, PJ Harvey, Charlie Chaplin and others.
The album will be the third full-length collaboration that Gahan has done with Soulsavers. ‘Imposters‘ is comprised of 12 tracks and is a follow-up to the 2012 album ‘The Light the Dead See‘ and 2015’s ‘Angels and Ghost.’
“When I listen to other people’s voices and songs—more importantly the way they sing them and interpret the words—I feel at home. I identify with it. It comforts me more than anything else. There’s not one performer on the record who I haven’t been moved by.” – Dave Gahan, Press Release
Gahan is based out of Essex, England, and is universally regarded as one of the best frontmen in music. Q magazine ranked Gahan 73 in their “100 Greatest Singers” list and 27 in the “100 Greatest Frontmen” list.
