• USED - DEPECHE MODE - Ultra CD
1997 UK Pressing (RSD STUMM 148)
Ultra is the ninth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode, released on 14 April 1997 by Mute Records. It was their first album since the departure of Alan Wilder in 1995; he had become disillusioned with life in the band. Wilder's departure and lead singer Dave Gahan's drug problems, which culminated in a near-fatal overdose, had caused many people to speculate that Depeche Mode was finished. Ultra is the first album the band recorded as a trio since A Broken Frame in 1982; it is also their first where the band members were not involved with production.
