A deluxe version of the album will contain a second disc with 4 additional tracks as well as a 28-page hardcover book featuring photos by Anton Corbijn.

“Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern,” songwriter, Martin Gore said in an announcement. “I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it.”

“It’s got a bit of a feel of Violator on some of the songs and a feel of Songs of Faith and Devotion on other songs, It’s a bit of a hybrid of those two for me.”

Kelly Sweet – “Ashes of My Paradise” [Official Video]

 

Watch L.A based singer\songwriter Kelly Sweet’s kaleidoscopic new video for the brilliant “Ashes of My Paradise.”

“In the opening shots, the mood is innocent, but there is a feeling of strain beneath the surface,” Sweet tells Hive. “As we move in deeper, we see the pain and passion take over as the colors become darker. However, all the way through we maintain a small light of hope reaching for the bit of true love left between the two.”

I’m getting Ellie Goulding, La Roux and Sarah McLachlan vibes from this beautiful tune!

MØ – “Glass” [New Track]

 

MO-Glass

Karen Marie Ørsted aka manages to hit all the right notes with a lush new track called, “Glass.” The Danish singer first grabbed our attention with the electric and sparkly, island-tinged, “Pilgrim.” The clever use of steel drums, horns, and sparkling xylophone on the song immediately moved her to the top our list of artist to watch.

Well,  is back with “Glass,” a lush, symphonic track, that again, cleverly mixes instruments of pop, hip-hop, electro and soul resulting in something completely original and absolutely fresh. Take is listen!!
