Depeche Mode shares cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ for iconic song’s 40th anniversary

Depeche Mode has been performing a cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes” on its Global Spirit Tour for the past several months, and today the group released a music video for a studio version of the cut in honor of the iconic song’s 40th anniversary.

Of the song, frontman Dave Gahan tells the NME:

“’Heroes’ is the most special song to me at the moment. Bowie is the one artist who I’ve stuck with since I was in my early teens. His albums are always my go-to on tour and covering ‘Heroes’ is paying homage to Bowie.”

Check out the full video below.

    Nice cover but I don’t agree with them playing it live on tour, that slot could have been filled with a rare track that they never play like People are People or Lie to Me.

    In theory, they should be able to produce a really good version of this iconic song. But they didn’t. I also agree with the above statement – hearing them play this live was… painful at best. Leave it out.

    This cover is bad and as a huge DM fan, I passed on both the Delta Machine Tour and Global Spirit Tour due to underwhelming repetition. Judging by the YouTube clips circulating, I have not missed anything at all.
