Before [lastfm]Depeche Mode[/lastfm]’s guitarist/keyboardist Martin Gore took over the band’s songwriting, [lastfm]Yazoo[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Erasure[/lastfm]’s Vince Clarke was the man who wrote the majority of the band’s music including their debut album Speak & Spell. Now the two musical forces have once again joined forces and are collaborating on a new project.
Clarke broke the news over Twitter, making mention to a new track titled “Zaat.”
So far, no new information about this collaboration has been posted, but if you’re a fan of Depeche Mode or any of Clarke’s music, be sure to follow him on Twitter. He advises fans to follow “for updates direct from the studio.”
Vince Clarke was only with Depeche Mode for their first album and was responsible for writing the band’s first singles Dreaming of Me, New Life and Just Can’t Get Enough.
For those of us that haven’t been following Vince Clarke’s career as of late, it seems as though he’s been quite busy remixing songs from classic KROQ bands Depeche Mode fans are familiar with.
