Album Description
Available in:
"New Life" is the second UK single by Depeche Mode recorded at Blackwing Studios, originally released on 13 June 1981. It was not commercially released in the United States.
There were two versions of the song available. The 7" version would later become the "album version", as it would eventually appear on the UK version of Speak & Spell, released in October 1981, and a 12" "remix," which differs from the "album version" in that it has a different intro, intensely percusive and harder, and an added synth part in the "solo" vocal section in the middle of the song, which is not present on the 7" mix. The "remix" would later appear on the US version of Speak & Spell.
The single became Depeche Mode's breakthrough hit in the UK, peaking at #11. On 25 June 1981, the band performed "New Life" during their debut on the BBC's Top of the Pops. The band would perform the song twice more on the show, on 16 July and 30 July 1981.
The b-side, "Shout!", is the first Depeche Mode song to get a 12" extended remix, called the "Rio Remix". This mix would later appear on the remix compilation Remixes 81–04, released in 2004. It is the earliest recorded song available on the compilation.
