NEW SINGLE - "Stardust"
RELEASE DATE: 14th April 2003

NEW ALBUM - "Counterfeit2"
RELEASE DATE: 28th April 2003

Martin L. Gore, songwriter and one of the founding members of Depeche Mode, is set to release his new album "Counterfeit?" on Mute on the 28th of April.

"Stardust", a version of the David Essex classic, is the first single to be lifted from the album and is released on the 14th of April.

"Counterfeit2" is the second in Martin L. Gore's counterfeit cover version series and, like his first Counterfeit release in 1989, it is a wildly diverse and passionate collection. The new album sees Gore radically rework eleven tracks, originally made famous by the likes of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Kurt Weill, John Lennon, Brian Eno and David Essex.

Recorded over the last 18 months at his home studio, Gore revisits and reinvents songs which have touched him deeply over the years. The tracks range from sultry 21st Century blues to achingly lovely sci-fi lullabies; sublime alt-country crooners to engrossing electronic torch songs. A glittering haul of buried treasure, their only guiding spirit being the visceral emotional attachment felt by Martin towards them.

"I really wanted to get across a fan's perspective," says Martin. "There is something about the songs I like that somehow gives the album a thread. Deep emotions, I suppose. There has to be a personal connection."
