Wasted feelings
Broken meanings
Time is fleeting
See what it brings

Hellos, goodbyes, a thousand midnights
Lost in sleepless lullabies

Heaven's dreaming
Thoughtless thoughts, my friends
We know we'll be ghosts again

Sundays shining
Silver linings
Weightless hours
All my flowers

A place to hide the tears that you cried
Everybody says goodbye

Faith is sleeping
Lovers in the end
Whisper we'll be ghosts again

Heaven's dreaming
Thoughtless thoughts, my friends
We know we'll be ghosts again

Faith is sleeping
Lovers in the end
Whisper we'll be ghosts again

I never appreciated or even liked this band- for decades. Always thought they were a lightweight Brit/ synth pop band. But this is fantastic, new outlook! Thanks RP.


You deserve to listen to Violator.
I always think of 80's music as dated, but this sounds like the 80's and yet fresh at the same time.   (I do like 80's music...)

Is the album not "Memento Mori" ?
Here it shows the album as "Ghosts Again" 
The album art is that of Memento Mori.
The most lyrically direct and unambiguous Depeche song for some time, beautifully melodic. 40 years of brilliance that isn't dimming.

I did not know that. Thank you for providing some context. My comment was sort of a joke (and a call-back to my mis-spent youth) but I think your interpretation of that line is right on the money.

Don't think I didn't catch that Rocky Horror reference, Depeche Mode.

You're referencing the line "time is fleeting" which made you think of the song Time Warp from the RHPS. 

I'm not sure that's their reference though as the album is titled 'Memento Mori'. Which you may know is Latin for "remember that you die" The "time is fleeting" clearly plays into someone that recognizes that their sand in the glass is quickly passing through.

Not really a reference I guess but the line "time is fleeting" made me think of Time Warp.
are there any other tracks from this album on RP? i really like this one, but i would like to hear more than this on the daily.

Radio Paradise is good for finding new music. It also brings you music from bands you wouldn’t usually listen to because you’ve already decided you don’t like them. Depeche Mode is like that for me. However, I’m loving this track. Thank you, Radio Paradise!


Same here, mostly - I'm a fan of SOME of their tunes, but this newer DM track is sounding great...rated an 8.

Long Live RP and new music from 40+ year old bands!
Saw DM two nights ago in Stockholm - they were fucking BRILLIANT! See them NOW

every time this song comes on now, I want to crank it up and sing along. It is so good.
Everything they do is Grand!

Damn, my brain just exploded with endorphins! 
I'm literally dancin in the street in Brooklyn,
I'm 25 again.
Proves that the 1980s is just a state of mind... the best of it lives on here.
The lyrics and album cover make it seem like a tribute to Andy Fletcher, which makes sense as this is the first album after his death.  And, it's actually really good...very basic, simple, which has been a hallmark of most of DM's best songs.  Good for them continuing on like this.
Sounds like they picked up where they left off.   (that's a good thing, imo)
Wow. I only noticed this was a new release when Bill popped in and said he would really like to play that song again, but  he doesn't want to burn it out and also mentioned that it is a new release.  It sounds so authentically Depeche Mode. Nice.
um Album title is Memento Mori not Ghosts Again
this is one of the four tracks co-written with Richard Butler (of the Psychedelic Furs).  Not bad-7
Wonderful that DM are still producing music of this quality. And that they are still such good live performers. 
As a longtime DM fan who fell off the wagon in the mid-00s, I'm so happy to hear them creating great work even in the midst of tragedy. Can't wait for the album.
Really simple but very catchy song
As Gen-Z says... this track really slaps.
Saw them perform this on Kimmel last night
Thank you for continuing to play DM. 
Love Ghosts Again,  beautiful melody and lyrically painful but joyous at the same time. It's the new old DM again! More DM on RP!
C'est  bon ça ! 
Now I don't feel so old

Thankfully. They still sound like tried & true Depeche Mode ! 
Possibly enjoying "new" DM more than "old" DM...

Saw DM perform this song on Stephen Colbert recently.

Usually enjoy their music, but this song just seems a little thin to me.
So very good. A new music Friday addition, I assume.

Amazing how some of these 80s icons (DM, TFF) can manage to still sound fresh some 40 years later.  I mean, in the day, you'd never would have expected that.  They seemed more likely to be tied to an era, rather than enduring spirits.  

Bravo guys... 




Of all the band's to endure, I would never thought DM would survive the road.  it's nice to hear them again as fresh as they were in the 80's.
