This thread contains all news info on the song 'Once you Say' with Martin Gore on backing vocals.

Although the song was officially released in 2010, the story begins in 2007...

 Please let me know if you have anything to add or alter.

2007-06-16 - VPRO (Netherlands) - Dace Clarke for 3Voor12

[DJ Dave Clarke had aired a special regarding his gig for the Sonar Festival, containing songs that were going to be played at the festival. He premiered Nitzer Ebb’s song Once You Say on his Dutch radio show for ‘3 voor 12’. He says in the podcast that the song features Martin Gore on backing vocals. He had labelled the song as “Once You See” at the bottom of the page, so there was a little confusion about the song title.
In Dec. 2009, Nitzer Ebb told Vampirefreaks.com (see a few posts below) that DJs like Dave Clarke have always been very supportive when it comes to playing their songs upon their request, so since it is indicated on the site that Clarke had received the song via CD, it is very well possible that Nitzer Ebb had sent him the song.]

You could hear the song clicking on the podcast “3VOOR12WHITENOISE 2007 16 jun 2007 uur 1”.

2007-11-06 - Side-Line (Belgium) - Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) delivers backing vocals on new Nitzer Ebb track 'Once you see'

http://www.side-line.com/news_comments.php?id=26937_0_2_0_C

Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) delivers backing vocals on new Nitzer Ebb track 'Once you see'
Depeche Mode songwriter Martin Lee Gore has delivered backing vocals for the brand new Nitzer Ebb track "Once you see" which was played by Dave Clarke in his White Noise show on VPRO's 3 Voor 12. The airing dates already from a while ago, namely June 16th but not much attention seems to have been given to it by the media. You can hear the track here (the second song after the news) where it premiered during Dave Clarke's show for the Dutch radio station. The presence of Martin Gore on the track as backing vocalist was confirmed to us by Douglas McCarthy last night. No releasedate is known yet for this track as a single. Above is the live version brought by the band during the 2007 edition of the Gothic Festival in Waregem, Belgium (the song is miss labeled here as "once you say"). In the meantime you can find a "Murderous" live video the "Into The Darkness" DVD. The clip was recorded last year during NEP's 'Body of work' tour at the Markthalle in Hamburg. And you can also hear a new track, "Payroll (JohnO Mix)", on the forthcoming "SAW IV" soundtrack.

2008-07-23 - Bon Harris - Album Update

http://bonharris.wordpress.com/2008/07/23/nitzer-ebb-update/

nitzer ebb update
During the recent Ebb euro travels, there were many questions (and rumours) regarding the progress of Ebb projects. Here’s the situation as of this morning.

The New Album:
Production is basically complete. There’s a couple of small items to finalise on two or three songs, but it’s basically there. Flood has voiced his desire to mix it, as always with Himself there is a question of availability. September is looking good for Flood right now. In the meantime, John O has been mixing as we complete work on songs.  We’ll have to see how the schedule works out.

The New Record Label:
We are still in negotiation with various interested parties. Some very promising offers, and more coming in daily. Contrary to several rumours we have not signed with anyone as yet.

The Documentary:
The documentary has been a bit delayed, for various reasons. We are meeting potential collaborators in the LA area to continue, and complete this project.

Release Date:
It seems reasonable to expect that the Album and Documentary will be complete before the end of 2008. Release date to follow as soon as schedule permits.
That’s the situation as it stands right now. More news as it happens.
Cheers
BH

2009-04-08 - Side-Line (Belgium) - New album Nitzer Ebb on hold due to 'financial troubles'

http://www.side-line.com/news_comments.php?id=41399_0_2_1_C

New album Nitzer Ebb on hold due to 'financial troubles'
Some official news from the Nitzer Ebb camp leaked in. While the band completed the new release for quite some time, including artwork, the release has been postponed due to what the band calls "the financial situation" which "has slowed things down in many regards". If the band doesn't find a satisfactory [financial] solution with a label partner they'll self-release the material on their own label, "but again, that takes time, (and money), to set up properly" the band says.
Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy are working on doing a release of some sort of material in the meantime: "Maybe remixes, extra tracks or some such, while we finalise the details of the album release. At this point we have a lot of material to choose from. Regardless of the business bullshit, we think it?s a great Ebb album and we are very eager to get it out and start playing it live on tour."
Fans who want to get some NE CDs at dumping prices (with free shipping worldwide) should check here. And below is the track "Once You Say" featuring Martin Lee Gore from Depeche Mode.

2009-11-17 - Lostinasupermarket (U.S.) - Nitzer Ebb interview (Excerpt)

http://lostinasupermarket.com/2009/11/nitzer-ebb-us-tour/

Nitzer Ebb US Tour
Since 2006, the band has been fine-tuning new material and is ready to embark on a US tour...

(...)

You’re going on tour with Depeche Mode in 2010?
The DM tour almost came out of the blue. We had Martin Gore sing backing vocals on the track “Once You Say” for the new album because we were looking for a ballsy female black gospel singer so Mart came straight to mind. Seriously that’s what we thought.

2009-11-28 - Slicingupeyeballs (U.S.) - Nitzer Ebb’s ‘Industrial Complex,’ first new album in 15 years, available on iTunes

http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2009/11/28/nitzer-ebb-industrial-complex-new-album-tracklist-itunes/

Nitzer Ebb’s ‘Industrial Complex,’ first new album in 15 years, available on iTunes

The wait is over for Nitzer Ebb fans: The first new studio album in nearly 15 years from the reunited electronic/industrial act quietly went on sale at major U.S. digital music outlets in the past few days, even though an official worldwide release isn’t planned until January.
As tipped by Waveformless, the 12-track “tour edition” of Nitzer Ebb’s Industrial Complex — which the band has been selling on CD at stops on its current U.S. club tour — has been on sale since at least Thursday through the iTunes Music Store and Amazon.com’s MP3 store,  although both outlets actually lists the album’s release date as March 9, 2010.
The tour CDs and iTunes edition may, actually, be the only American releases of Industrial Complex, the band’s first new studio album since 1995’s Big Hit. Over the past year, the group has made no secret of its difficulties in finding a way to release the record.
In an interview with Denver’s Westword last week, Bon Harris said:
“We’re bringing a limited edition CD on the road with us that will only be available at the shows — a kind of preview. Because of the way the industry is, it’s a bit of jigsaw puzzle trying to figure out how we’re going to release it — different licensees, different territories. There wasn’t really anything for the U.S. until someone stepped in and said they really wanted to do a version of the CD while we were on tour.”
The Industrial Complex CD is due out Jan. 22 on Major Records in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and is expected out elsewhere worldwide around that time. Nitzer Ebb is on the road in the U.S. through mid-December, and then will open for Depeche Mode throughout Europe in January and February.
See full tracklist of Nitzer Ebb’s ‘Industrial Complex: Tour Edition’ after the jump…
Tracklist: Nitzer Ebb, Industrial Complex: Tour Edition
1. “Promises”
2. “Once You Say”

2009-12-01 - Vampirefreaks (U.S.) - VampireFreaks Presents An Interview with NITZER EBB

[Nitzer Ebb did an interview with VampireFreaks, in which they talk about Martin's backing vocals, and why it took so long to release the album.]
http://vampirefreaks.com/playvideo/?v=116334

Douglas: (...) to keep a radio station going that ISN'T an Internet radio station. That's the other thing, that the Internet radio stations are great.
J.A.: Right. So you guys have been using those now as well?
Douglas: Yeah! Dave Clarke has got one in Holland, and Dave has always been a fan of the band and he pushes us there. (...)
(...)
J.A.: I just found out recently you will be touring with Depeche Mode, but in Europe. So unfortunately, everyone sitting on this side of the Atlantic, it's not for us.
Bon/Douglas: Unless you come to Europe.
J.A.: I'm seriously considering it now, I have a friend who can get me plane tickets. (...)
Douglas: Yeah, we'll be touring again with them in Europe. The last time we toured with them was 22 years ago.
J.A.: Yeah, it was in 1990, when I first saw you.
Douglas: In 1988 we toured with them during Music For The Masses in Europe and then in 1990...
J.A.: ...With the Violator Tour.
J.A.: And then, you have Martin Gore on one of your songs, yes?
Bon: We do indeed, yeah. Initially when we were doing the album we had a few people to kind of collaborate with, in mind, but given with everything we're doing ourselves, we couldn't organise things logistically. But, Martin was just down the road, and there was one track that we felt particularly that he would fit on.
Douglas: We said, "Well basically we want a sort of, like, ballsy, female, black gospel singer", so we went immediately "Martin". (laughter) And it's true! It really is true! He sounds like a ballsy, black gospel singer.
J.A.: Yeah, he's got a great voice for that!
Bon: And he looks great in a dress, and it all just fit.

2009-12-19 - Reflections of Darkness (Germany) - Interview with Bon Harris of Nitzer Ebb (Excerpt)

http://www.reflectionsofdarkness.com/-artists-k-o-interviews-87/6552-nitzer-ebb-december-2009.html

Written by J. “Niggels” Uhlenbruch

(...)

RoD: Simple question: What are your personal faves from ‘Industrial Complex’?
BH: ‘Once You Say’ is a big fave. I think it contains many aspects that represent the album. And of course Martin [Gore, of DEPECHE MODE] sings on it as well. It has a bit of everything. I also really like ‘Going Away’. It was written on piano then orchestrated on synthesizers. It's a simple, gentle song that conveys emotions that I think most people can identify with.

RoD: What were the first tracks you wrote and finished for the new album?
BH: ‘Payroll’ and ‘Once You Say’ were the first tracks written in basic form. They came from the very first session, in a rehearsal room in LA, a couple of quick improvisations on the midi mallet keyboard, using a Cwejman synthesizer.

(...)

RoD: Around the release of ‘Industrial Complex’ you will tour with DEPECHE MODE again, for the third time after 1987 and 1990. How did this come about? Were you asked by the MODE boys themselves, Daniel Miller or is it a completely different story? 
BH: We've stayed in touch with DM over the years, and obviously Martin sang on ‘Once You Say’, so we had a dialogue going anyway. We asked them initially. With a new album coming out, of course it made sense to work with them again; it's a fantastic opportunity to reach a lot of people. We played the DM fan club show in Berlin, the night before DM played. They came down to our show, and apparently enjoyed it. Soon after that we were seriously talking about touring with them. To our surprise and delight, it became a reality. Not sure how much Daniel was involved in that specific decision, but he has been incredibly supportive and helpful ever since the reunion in 2006. There still seems to be a lot of love for NE at Mute, and we are very lucky and thankful to have that.

2010-01-03 - Reflections of Darkness (Germany) - NE interview (excerpt)

http://www.reflectionsofdarkness.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=6616&Itemid=46

Written by Janos Janurik

(...)

RoD: Douglas, you mentioned to me last year when we met in Vienna, that there is a chance that you’ll be the support act of Depeche Mode on their “Tour Of The Universe“. As we already know, this dream will come true. Who was the person, who asked you for this supporting tour? / Which band-member asked you for this supporting tour?
Douglas: Indeed! Well we have always kept in touch with them, specifically with Martin, as we all live in Southern California. We’d asked Mart to sing backing vocals on one of the new tracks, ‘Once You Say’, and then once we knew we were going to be releasing as they were finishing up their tour in Europe it made sense to approach him about the support slot.

RoD: The last time you supported Depeche Mode on a tour, was back in 1990. Have you kept in contact with the band since then - apart from Alan Wilder? What was the most memorable moment for you during the World Violation Tour?
Bon: We’ve remained in personal touch with Martin, and he agreed to sing some backing vocals on ‘Once You Say’. We go to the shows whenever they are in LA, and that gives us a chance to catch up, we’ve maintained good relationship everybody over the years. There are so many memories from the WV tour; it all tends to blend together. We did like to buy a hotdog and watch ‘Stripped’ to check out the stage show and audience response.

2010-01-12 - Side-Line (Belgium) - 5 exclusive Martin Lee Gore backed remixes on Belgian edition new Nitzer Ebb album 'Industrial complex' + massive download from Nitzer Ebb back catalogue

http://www.side-line.com/news_comments.php?id=44074_0_2_0_C

5 exclusive Martin Lee Gore backed remixes on Belgian edition new Nitzer Ebb album 'Industrial complex' + massive download from Nitzer Ebb back catalogue

First some bad news, due to the fact that artwork and remixes came in much later than promised/expected, the Alfa Matrix label has been forced to push back the release date for Nitzer Ebb's newest album "Industrial complex" till February 12. "Industrial Complex" is Nitzer Ebb's 6th studio album to date, once again produced by Flood (Editors, Depeche Mode, ...) and featuring guest vocals by Depeche Mode's songwriter Martin L. Gore on the song "Once You Say".
And now the good news, this special "Belgian" edition released by Alfa Matrix will feature no less than 5 exclusive remixes of the Martin L. Gore backed song "Once You Say". These remixes are not available on any other version of "Industrial Complex". Remixes have been provided by Leaether Strip, Komor Kommando, Pouppee Fabrikk, Implant and Essence Of Mind. You can order this version together with a "EBM - My way of life" T-shirt at the Alfa Matrix webstore.
In further news, Mute has released for the first time, a Nitzer Ebb collection of B-sides, remixes & rarities comprising of 60 tracks...! The digital album named "In order" is available now on iTunes. Check the complete track list right here and it looks rather smashing.

Angst Music For Sex People: A Nitzer Ebb Interview
John Doran

(...)

So I'm guessing because of the jointly written song on the album you're all still mates with Martin Gore. I was wondering how his song writing process differ from yours?
BH: Yeah. The song that we did with Martin was actually a collaboration so he just came in and sang it so he wasn't that involved with the writing on it. By his own admission he'll call himself the laziest song writer in pop history but I think he's being a little bit modest there. You look at his songs and it's really interesting the chord progressions he chooses. He's slotted in with people who make perfect pop but there's always something really interesting going on in there.
DM: He's obviously much more traditional than us. He picks up a guitar and goes through chord changes and on our stuff that tends to only happen once in a while. On the new album there are just two songs on the album that come from harmonies.
