Depeche Mode released their beloved single "Never Let Me Down Again" 30 years ago today. The alluring and dark anthem was issued as the second song from their soon-to-be released album Music For The Masses, which followed September 28th, 1987 (shares the same release date with the Smiths' swansong Strangeways Here We Come and Pixies' debut Come On Pilgrim).

Part of what makes "Never Let Me Down Again" so grand and majestic is its music video, which was directed by visual genius Anton Corbijn. By this time in '87 Depeche Mode had already established a creative and successful relationship with Corbijn, who directed the previous two videos "A Question Of Time" (off Black Celebration) and "Strangelove," the first single off Music For the Masses. The band's collaborations with Corbijn indeed played an essential role in transforming Depeche Mode into one of the most iconic and legendary acts in music history.





Anton Corbijn is still a key player in the world of Depeche Mode -- he created the visuals for their latest album Spirit and designed the stage sets for their Global Spirit tour. The U.S. leg of the tour kicked off last night in Salt Lake City and rolls through DTE August 27th. Tickets are available here.
