Depeche Mode to release live album from brothel

2014-10-09 17:00

New York - Depeche Mode's new live album will feature an acoustic session recorded inside a Berlin brothel in footage shot by celebrated rock photographer and director Anton Corbijn.

The British synthpop giants said on Wednesday they will release a CD/DVD package entitled Live in Berlin, which features two hours of footage filmed in the German capital during their 32-nation tour.

Along with concert footage from the 02 World arena in Berlin, the album due out on 17 November will feature an acoustic set recorded at Salon Bel Ami, a famous high-end brothel known for its plush decor.

The brothel closed in 2011 when its owner was sent to prison for tax fraud.

Corbijn said in a statement that Depeche Mode enjoyed a strong following in Berlin, which is renowned for its electronic music scene.

"Berlin has a special place in the hearts of Depeche Mode," said the Dutch photographer, who came to prominence in part through his pictures that captured the darkness of Joy Division.

Depeche Mode - which has put out a string of hits since the 1980s including People Are People, Just Can't Get Enough and Personal Jesus - earlier enjoyed success with their 1989 two-disc live album 101 which was filmed at the Rose Bowl stadium in southern California.
