Press Info (Englisch):
Martin Gore, songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode, announces the releases of ‘MG’, an evocative 16-track electronic instrumental album out on 27 April 2015 on Mute.

Written and produced by Martin Gore, work began on ‘MG’ following the final dates of Depeche Mode’s ‘Delta Machine’ tour in March 2013 at Gore’s home studio in Santa Barbara. An entire instrumental album had been in his thoughts for some time, particularly since he has been writing instrumentals for Depeche Mode since 1981.

“I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like quality,” Martin explains. “Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least 5 days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.”

‘MG’ is a soundtrack to an emotional and mysterious film of your own design.
From the Angelo Badalmenti – like atmosphere of ‘Elk’ to the industrial electro swagger of ‘Brink’, it landscapes a unique and arresting vision.

After finishing recording ‘MG’, Martin asked Q to mix it which seemed a perfectly natural choice as he previously mixed VCMG, Martin Gore and Vince Clarke’s 2012 album, ‘SSSS’.

Explaining the decision to release the album under the acronym, MG, Gore says, “As the album is very electronic and has no vocals, I felt it deserved another persona so decided to carry on the MG concept from the VCMG album.”

‘MG’ showcases another side to this multi-talented musician. “As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words,” Martin admits. “Especially when they are juxtaposed in the right way with chords and melody. I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”

 

Press Info (German):
Martin Gore, Songwriter und Gründungsmitglied von Depeche Mode, kündigt die Veröffentlichung of MG an, seinem 16 Tracks umfassenden, elektronischen Instrumental Album, das am 24. April bei Mute erscheinen wird.

Jetzt schon lässt sich daraus der Vorgeschmack Europa Hymn hier anhören (siehe unten).

Das Schreiben und Produzieren an Album MG begann Martin Gore im heimischen Studio in Santa Barbara gleich im Anschluss an die letzten Termine von Depeche Mode’s Delta Machine Tour im März 2013. Ein komplettes Instrumental Album schwebte ihm schon länger vor, schrieb er für Depeche Mode Instrumentals im Grunde schon seit 1981.

“I wanted to keep the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like quality,” erklärt Gore. “Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least 5 days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.”

MG ist der Soundtrack zu Martin Gores ganz eigenem Kopfkino. Von der Angelo Badalmenti-artigen Athmosphäre in Elk hin zum Industrial Electro Swag auf Brink zeichnet das Album eine fesselnde und ungeahnte Klanglandschaft.

Nach dem Aufnahmen zu MG bat Gore Q (alias Überzone), das Album zu mixen, was ganz logisch erschein, mixte Q zuvor bereits VCMG, Martin Gore und Vince Clarkes (Erasure) 2012er Album SSSS.

Danach gefragt, warum Martin Gore sein Solo Album unter dem Namen MG veröffentlicht, antwortet er: “As the album is very electronic and has no vocals, I felt it deserved another persona so decided to carry on the MG concept from the VCMG album.”

So kurz das Akronym MG auch zu sein scheint, so breit ist das Abgebot, das uns Musik-Multitalent Martin Gore hier präsentiert. “As a songwriter, I am aware of the power of words. Especially when they are juxtaposed in the right way with chords and melody. I am also aware of the power of pure music and the emotions that can be created by musical atmospheres and that is what I wanted to capture with this project.”

[News]: Martin Gore releases solo album under MG on Mute

 

Martin Gore – solo album?

 

News Text:
A few days ago Depeche Mode member Martin L. Gore posted a strange info (or better no info) on Facebook yesterday. There was only the picture below and the tag “#MGxMG” …

Having the name VCMG in mind (VCMG = Vince Clarke + Martin Gore) the fans assumed very fast that there will be an annnouncement of a solo album soon.

A second posting by Martin Gore showed another picture (see below). You can read some interesting things on these plates: “For Big Life Management” (Dave Bascombe’s Management, “Mastered by Stefan Bethke” (well-known as musician Pole), “Art direction and design by Martin Gore”.

 

And now we got the final news… Martin Gore will release a solo album under his acronym MG on Mute with catalogue number STUMM381. The album will also be called “MG” and contains 16 instrumentals. It will be out on 27th April.

Having it in his thoughts for some time, particularly since he has been writing instrumentals for Depeche Mode since 1981, he wanted to keep “the music very electronic, very filmic and give it an almost sci-fi like quality. Music is a necessity for me. I go into the studio at least 5 days a week, every week, so once I had the idea and the template, the process was quick and fun.”

So it is a soundtrack to an emotional and mysterious film of your own design.

To get an idea how the album will sound like, Mute just uploaded the first track “Europa Hymn” for your pleasure.

They also announced the full track listing of the upcoming album: “Pinking” , “Swanning”, “Exalt”, “Elk” , “Brink”, “Europa Hymn”, “Creeper”, “Spiral”, “Stealth”, “Hum”, “Islet”, “Crowly”, “Trysting”, “Southerly”, “Featherlight” and “Blade”.

Please check here for all details about the album.
