The new, and tenth, Depeche Mode album "Songs Of Faith And Devotion" is one of the most eagerly awaited albums of 1993. Their last album "Violator" was their most successful to date and after the tour finished, playing to 1,200,000 people over eight months, the group decided to take a one year sabbatical. It took the young Essex group only three weeks to record their first album, "Speak And Spell", in 1981
Songs of Faith and Devotion is the eighth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. It was first released on 22 March 1993 in the United Kingdom by Mute Records and a day later in the United States by Sire Records and Reprise Records. The album incorporated a more aggressive, darker rock-oriented tone than its predecessor Violator (1990), largely influenced by the emerging alternative rock and grunge scenes in the United States.

It took Depeche Mode a decade to make the world-dominating album they’d been aiming for since the first synth squiggles of their debut record bounced out of speakers. They stumbled at first, checking in with zippy synth-pop singles buried in crushingly boring LPs. Several albums - and regrettable ‘80s haircuts - later, they finally nailed down a formula that was part alt-rock bluster, part synth-goth excess and part clubland beats. Starting with 1986’s ‘Black Celebration,’ Depeche Mode began crafting albums that were just as interesting as their singles. When Depeche Mode finally regrouped for 1997’s blah ‘Ultra,’ it became obvious that ‘Songs of Faith and Devotion’ had drained their soul. But they wouldn’t have had it any other way. Watch Depeche Mode's Video for 'I Feel You'.
This was the first Depeche Mode UK album to have a specially pressed promotional advance CD. It was sent to press two months before the original CD was released. Also of note are the more unique (and hard to find) UK formats, like MiniDisc and DCC (Digital Compact Cassette). A UK promotional box set was also made for this album, back in 1993. The box contained the "Songs Of Faith And Devotion", "Songs Of Faith And Devotion Live", "The Singles 81-85" and "Depro1CD". Depro1CD was a promotional compilation of Depeche Mode singles from 1986 to 1993.
