Depeche Mode Premieres 'Wrong' on Echo Awards Show, Germany

Depeche Mode premiered the first single 'Wrong' off their upcoming album 'Sounds Of the Universe' on Germany's Echo Awards Show last night.

On contrary to reports both before and after the performance of the song, I can confirm this: it wasn't performed live but rather it was lip-synced.

The song itself was kinda repetitive. Melody wise, it's very bluesy. Noticeably there is no chorus for the song. In my personal opinion, I think one would have helped the song a lot perhaps bringing it to a higher level. All in all, I can say it's vintage Depeche Mode because it's all synths and no guitars and of course, Dave Gahan's strong vocals on this one.

You can watch the performance of the song on YouTube:
