DEPECHE MODE RELEASE ANTON CORBIJN DIRECTED VIDEO FOR “COVER ME”
Iconic, multi-platinum selling musical pioneers Depeche Mode have debuted the music video for their track “Cover Me”. Depeche Mode has always placed an essential emphasis on the quality of their videos, collaborating with world-class directors on some of the most powerful and influential short films in music video history. “Cover Me” is no exception. Directed by their longtime creative collaborator, Dutch photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, “Cover Me” features a pensive Dave Gahan, dressed in astronaut attire, restlessly wandering through an empty Los Angeles and adrift in space. Shot in black and white with heavily contrasted light and shadow, the video is as moody as the song itself.
Says Gahan, “A big surprise for me was how ‘Cover Me’ ended up being. I always heard this idea of the song being in two halves. The song is here and then you kind of get in the spaceship and go somewhere else.”
