Depeche Mode's back catalouge is set to be a musical which will open in Malta early next year called "Playing the Angel," after their brilliant 2005 album. Playwright Aaron Buckle told The Times of Malta "Depeche Mode are not ABBA or Queen. The story can't be a happy one. It is a story of two boys growing up, coming of age and discovering love. They are abused, used, taken advantage of. It's their sad way of discovering life."

This is Bush's first album of new material since 2001's Golden State.
