The career-spanning collection features 644 tracks
Depeche Mode have announced the release of a massive download-only "box set".
The career-spanning retrospective, appropriately titled 'The Complete Depeche Mode', is available now for download on US iTunes.
Following on the heels of a more modest 'Best Of' collection released last November, the mega-retrospective contains 644 tracks.
The set features all 11 of their studio albums, all of their singles and B-sides, and two live albums, as well as rare and previously unreleased material.
In addition to album tracks it features rare and deleted recordings, 19 digital-only remixes, and previously unreleased rehearsal recordings. It comes packaged with a 62-page downloadable booklet featuring images by renowned photographer Anton Corbijn.
Depeche Mode released their first single in 1981, and have spent more than 400 combined weeks on the UK charts.
