How often can you say...Dave Gahan just sang background vocals on our track? (In this case...only once) It's a special one. #DavidBowie

It'll be a digital release only. I'm self funding & all proceeds go to charity, more cost effective. Sorry vinyl lovers!

2017-03-20 - Humo (Belgium) - Blijven Gahan

http://www.humo.be/humo-archief/376007/blijven-gahan-depeche-mode

(....)

HUMO: Samen met Mark Lanegan coverde je vorig jaar de oude Bowie-song ‘Cat People’. De stem van Lanegan is daarin veel prominenter dan die van jou. Moet je dan je ego aan de ketting leggen als de zanglijnen verdeeld worden?
Gahan: «Ik ben er in een later stadium bij betrokken geraakt. De song werd mij toegestuurd via Martyn LeNoble – ik ken hem van bij Soulsavers, jij kent hem wellicht het best als de bassist van Porno For Pyros. Hij wou dat ik ‘er eens naar luisterde’. Ik was geveinsd kwaad: ‘Je had me dit eerder moeten vragen. Ik had er iets op kunnen inzingen.’ Waarop hij: ‘Echt? Zou je willen? Het kan nog steeds...’ Ik heb een paar zinnen toegevoegd aan het slot van de song: voor de rest was het al perfect.»
