NEW YORK (AP) – One of the most daunting tasks Martin Gore of Depeche Mode faces is writing an album. He says he feels a lot of pressure until he gets three or four songs done, then it becomes easier. He says it really is a bit like riding a bike. Depeche Mode will put out “Delta Machine” tomorrow. Gore says that title is a nod to the two influences in their music, blues and electronic. You might not think of Depeche Mode as a blues act, but Gore says it’s been part of their sound all along. He says “Personal Jesus” has blues undertones to it.
