≡♠   Multi–platinum selling, Grammy Award–winning recording artist Dave Gahan, along with musical partner Soulsavers,new album is ‘Angels & Ghosts’. This is the collaborators' second album, following their critically–acclaimed 2012 release 'The Light the Dead See'. The utterly riveting album boasts nine original tracks, all written by Dave Gahan & Soulsavers.
≡♠   An evolution from their first album, ‘Angels & Ghosts’ proves to be a markedly stronger and more hard–hitting body of work. Listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of dark, brooding sounds, elements inspired by gospel and blues, and the stark beauty that has become a signature of Dave and Soulsavers works. Dave Gahan's emotionally powerful voice has never sounded better, and drives the album forward over a landscape of meticulously crafted instrumentation.
≡♠   A transatlantic collaboration, the writing process started with Dave Gahan and Soulsavers’ Rich Machin exchanging demos and ideas from their respective studios in lower Manhattan and rural England. They then recorded the album with additional musicians in studios around the world, including classic locations such as Sunset Sound in Los Angeles and Electric Lady in New York. The end result is a vibrant, live–sounding album, and proof of the "instant and obvious fit" Machin felt writing with Gahan.

≡♠   Dave Gahan has sung about a soul that needs saving since his earliest murmurings as the frontman of Depeche Mode. Now, he’s recorded his second collection of collaborative songs with Soulsavers since teaming up with the U.K. production enterprise in 2012. The first release was solely a Soulsavers project by virtue of its billing, with Gahan presented as a contributor of vocals to all songs that weren’t instrumentals. But Angels & Ghosts puts Gahan's name — and his searching, dependably anguished cry — out front for all to behold.
≡♠   Angels & Ghosts is nothing like a Depeche Mode album in terms of atmosphere, with a dusty, sparse desert–rock sound that couldn’t be less electronic. Earthiness is the gambit instead, with Gahan humming in the opening few seconds as if he's a weathered old bluesman readying his throat for an exorcism. "Shine" sets the template from the start: gritty guitar riffs, loping rhythms and a spirit that glows (“There's light here, and it shines on you”) through even the darkest moods. "You Owe Me" moves even more slowly, with Gahan sounding a bit like the ghost of Jim Morrison in a trippy, menacing cantina before "Tempted" fills out around a snaky guitar part and vocal harmonizing that evokes younger guns like Sharon Van Etten and Midlake.
≡♠   Most of the album revolves around a formidable mix of electric guitar and electric piano, with gospel–inspired backing vocals summoning a sense of scale that swells. "Don't Cry" calls on all the elements at a forlorn speed that allows each of the pieces to make for maximum rock drama.
≡♠   There's plenty of space for Gahan to haunt with words that tip toward both loss and salvation. In "All Of This And Nothing," after equating himself with the dirt, the sun, a river and a storm, he sings, “I’m all of this and nothing” as if the chance to voice such a realization makes up for the ambiguity within it. In "One Thing," he’s on to singing about "life on Mars" with a spirited sense of communion. But Earth, with all its grit and grief and grace, seems to be where he remains most at home.
