Songs of Faith and Devotion is the eighth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. It was first released on 22 March 1993 in the United Kingdom by Mute Records and a day later in the United States by Sire Records and Reprise Records. The album incorporated a more aggressive, darker rock-oriented tone than its predecessor Violator (1990), largely influenced by the emerging alternative rock and grunge scenes in the United States.

Songs of faith and devotion". The new, and tenth, Depeche Mode album "Songs Of Faith And Devotion" is one of the most eagerly awaited albums of 1993. Their last album "Violator" was their most successful to date and after the tour finished, playing to 1,200,000 people over eight months, the group decided to take a one year sabbatical. It took the young Essex group only three weeks to record their first album, "Speak And Spell", in 1981. Studio Madrid Session 1992. Songs Of Faith And Devotion’ 2. 1. Mastered by Kevin Metcalfe. Strings arranged and conducted by Wil Malone. Higher Love" 05:56, Produced by Depeche Mode and Flood. Engineered by Steve Lyon, Chris Dickie and Paul Kendall.
Lennon wrote the White Album's fitting last song, but Starr sings it. Lennon asked producer George Martin to score "Good Night" like an old Hollywood melodrama. None of the other Beatles are here; just Starr, a bunch of strings and a super-sappy vocal group. 28. "Don't Pass Me By". Starr's first solo composition isn't bad. It isn't all that good either. McCartney never shied away from his love of vintage British music hall tunes. He applied it to his writing from the time of the Beatles' first record and continued all the way through to his solo career. Honey Pie" is one of his most obvious songs in the style. The White Album take is more of a slow blues than a balls-out rocker, but there's no disguising the intensity that drips through the grooves. The Beatles never rocked so hard.
Songs Of Faith And Devotion' was released exactly twenty years ago this week. In 1993, the quartet of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher and Alan Wilder - regarded as the 'classic' Depeche Mode line-up - was a band vastly changed from their synth-pop roots. Songs Of Faith And Devotion' is one of several pivotal albums in Depeche Mode's back catalogue, not least because it would be the catalyst for a massive change in the band. The accompanying fourteen-month global tour would see Andrew Fletcher quit the band temporarily through stress and Gore suffering from seizures brought on, in his words, by extreme exhaustion.
Upon its release, Songs of Faith and Devotion reached number one in several countries, and became the first Depeche Mode album to debut atop the charts in both the UK and the US. To support the album, Depeche Mode embarked on the fourteen-month-long Devotional Tour, the largest tour the band had ever undertaken to that date. Recording the album and the subsequent tour exacerbated growing tensions and difficulties within the band, prompting Alan Wilder to quit, making this album the final with him as a band member
Song to song, Faith and Devotion showcases Depeche’s every, er, mode at its finest and adds a wee something - an intensifier, a surprise, the shocking but not unpleasant sound of frontman Dave Gahan actually singing. I Feel You has the twangy stomp of Personal Jesus ; it’s ecstatically danceable. The soulful Walking in My Shoes does great things with backup singers and resentment. Get Right With Me experiments with scratching and chiming guitars, while One Caress sounds like the show stopper from a lachrymose Broadway musical
