generic icon Hourglass - Exclusive US Remix Album
January 22nd, 2008
DAVE GAHAN will follow 2007's HOURGLASS with a vinyl collection of remixes of songs from the critically acclaimed album. HOURGLASS - REMIXES, scheduled for March 11th, 2008 release via Mute/Virgin Records, features Juan Maclean, Booka Shade, Kap10Kurt, Maps, T. Raumschmiere, Digitalism, Onur Ozer and Sebastien Leger taking on tracks such as hit single "Kingdom," (recently #1 on Billboard's Singles chart and #5 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart), "Deeper & Deeper," "Use You" and "Saw Something" plus "Love Will Leave," a b-side from the HOURGLASS sessions. The collection will mark the first time many of these versions have been released physically in the United States; numerous selections that have been available only as imports until now.
HOURGLASS - REMIXES, which will include a free CD, will be available exclusively through, which services the best independent music retailers in America with exclusive and rare items that are not available via major chain and big-box stores. The bonus CD includes all eight tracks from the vinyl plus three additional remixes. Visit for a complete list of outlets.
With his second solo album, the Depeche Mode front man emerged as a gifted songwriter, masterfully capturing man's race against -- and fear of running out of - time. Filter's "Good Music Guide" called the album "astonishingly brilliant...squaring off with everything from nihilism to the tyranny of humans. And all the while aching for something of real value and consequence" while Rolling Stone noted: "Hourglass goes all the way electro...Gahan broods over God and humanity and the bleakness of existence in ballads like 'Kingdom' and 'Saw Something.' But he gets off a fantastic sex-hound growl in 'Use You,' with a gospel vibe recalling Songs of Faith and Devotion."
GAHAN's LIVE FROM SOHO, recorded in October at the Apple Store in New York City, was released on iTunes on December 18th, 2007, and he recently performed on NPR's "World Cafe."
