Holiday Gift Guide 2020: Depeche Mode – Songs of Faith and Devotion | The 12″ Singles

Since 2018, Depeche Mode has been rolling out collector’s edition box sets of the 12” singles from each of their albums starting with Speak & Spell and A Broken Frame. The latest offering in that series is Songs of Faith and Devotion.

The Songs of Faith and Devotion | The 12″ Singles box set is comprised of eight 12″ vinyl records and contains the singles “I Feel You”, “Walking In My Shoes”, “Condemnation” and “In Your Room”, as well as remixes, B-sides and live performance recordings from all from Depeche Mode’s Songs of Faith and Devotion era. If you’ve got a Depeche Mode fan on your holiday shopping list, Songs of Faith and Devotion | The 12″ Singles would be a great addition to their collection. Or if you’re a huge Depeche Mode fan like me, a perfect gift to get for yourself.

1993’s Songs of Faith and Devotion came three years after the release of Violator, the commercial breakthrough album for the boys from Basildon, and during the height of grunge. This album saw the band take on an even darker sound as well as bringing on more rock, gospel, and harder-edged electronic influences. The band had tackled religious themes & iconography with their lyrics before in their past work but it’s all over Songs of Faith and Devotion. By all accounts, it was a difficult album to make but the band and producer Flood pulled it off, creating a body of work that stands out as being one of Depeche Mode’s most unique sounding projects in their discography.

Released on high-quality vinyl with audio mastered from the original tapes, the 12” singles sound great. The packaging also contributes to Songs of Faith and Devotion | The 12″ Singles being a great holiday gift. With all of Depeche Mode’s 12” singles box sets, the artwork draws inspiration from their respective original releases making them statement art pieces that the Depeche Mode fan in your life will proudly display. There are more releases to come as the plan is to keep releasing 12” Singles collector’s edition box sets for each Depeche Mode album.
