Counterfeit Gore, Take 2

April 29 the US will get a new record from Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) on Mute/Reprise. The new album, Counterfeit is the second in Martin's series of cover albums (the first being released in 1989). This album will feature re- worked tunes by Iggy Pop, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, David Essex, Lou Reed, John Lennon and more.

"Without some of the artists I've covered here, I wouldn't be writing the way I do. They have all affected me at some point, especially when I was younger." Martin goes on to say that he has created this album from a fan's perspective because he has a deep personal connection to all of the songs he's covered.
