Martin Gore Shares New Track "Howler"; New EP Out January 29
Martin Gore, songwriter and founding member of Depeche Mode, today releases the haunting “Howler,” taken from the forthcoming 5-track instrumental EP, The Third Chimpanzee, out January 29 on Mute.
“‘Howler’ was the first track I recorded for The Third Chimpanzee EP,” Martin says. “I resynthesized some vocals that almost sounded human, but not quite. That’s why I decided to name the track after a monkey. I thought that would be a good theme to carry on with the rest of the tracks.”

Like the entire EP, “Howler” paints a cinematic musical landscape that sounds like a new dawn. Written and produced by Martin Gore, it was recorded at Electric Ladyboy in Santa Barbara, California.
The Third Chimpanzee EP is available for pre-order now on CD, limited edition 12” Azure Blue vinyl (which includes an art print), and digital platforms. Artwork is by Pockets Warhol. Pre-order The Third Chimpanzee here. [ https://mute.ffm.to/mg-ttc ]
