VCMG announce album details & next single "Single Blip"

VCMG have released the info on their forthcoming album titled “Ssss” that will be proceeded by the second single “Single Blip” (EP2).  The album is set to be released on March 12th and features 10 original tracks composed by Martin L. Gore and Vince Clarke. It was mixed by Q, was recorded and engineered by Sie Medway Smith and Vince, and Stefan Betke of Pole fame mastered it. Full tracklist after the jump!


VCMG release one of 2012’s most anticipated musical collaborations with the album ‘Ssss’, out on Mute on 12 March 2012.



It marks the long awaited reunion of electronic pioneers Vince Clarke (Erasure/ Yazoo/ Depeche Mode) and Martin L. Gore (Depeche Mode), who have joined forces for the first time in over thirty years to craft a 10-track album which demonstrates their mutual love of electronic music.


After initial tentative discussions, and a meeting at Short Circuit presents Mute festival in London, where they both performed, these two influential musicians and songwriters worked in a typically unique way. Clarke and Gore worked alone in their respective studios, communicating only via email and exchanging files until the album was ready. The album includes the recent 12” EP1 / Spock, described by The Quietus as “one of the best tracks of 2011”, plus the forthcoming EP 2 / Single Blip.


‘Ssss’, written and produced by Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore, was mixed by Timothy “Q” Wiles, recorded and engineered by Sie Medway Smith and Vince Clarke and mastered by Stefan Betke (aka Pole).


Full remix details for EP2 / Single Blip, the follow up to EP1 / Spock – out now on 12” / download and featuring remixes by Edit-Select, Regis, DVS1 and XOQ – will follow.

    All instrumentals? I don't mind, like these reviews have said it is a much anticipated collaboration, I for one can't wait. After Mr Gore's work with Motor it'd be good to hear some vocals from him on this project or even guest vocals from other parties. Let's wait to hear what it sounds like, Spock was excellent, I can imagine it being very well received in clubland.
