Depeche Mode release music video for ‘Before We Drown’: Watch
Experience the latest visual masterpiece from Depeche Mode as they unveil the video for their track ‘Before We Drown.’ Directed by the renowned Anton Corbijn, a frequent collaborator of the band, the black and white film mirrors the broader themes of mortality and salvation found in their 15th studio album, ‘Memento Mori,’ released last March.
The artistic collaboration between Depeche Mode and Corbijn has been ongoing, with previous videos for the album’s singles, ‘Wagging Tongue‘ and ‘Ghosts Again.’ The band expressed their gratitude for Corbijn’s contribution to the evolution of the Depeche Mode aesthetic, acknowledging his photography and art direction.
Notably, ‘Memento Mori‘ marked a significant chapter for the English electronic band, being their first album since the passing of founding member Andy Fletcher earlier that year. Despite this, the album has continued to make waves and recently achieved the status of one of the best-selling Vinyl on Discogs in 2023.
To commemorate the album release, Depeche Mode graced ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert‘ a year ago, delivering a powerful performance of the lead single ‘Ghosts Again‘ and a rendition of the classic ‘Personal Jesus.’ The ‘Before We Drown‘ video encapsulates the essence of the album, portraying a soul wading out to sea in a compelling visual narrative.
