As part of the promotion of its upcoming Black Celebration singles 12-inch box set, Depeche Mode this past week shared director Peter Care’s alternate cut of his original music video for “Stripped,” one of the singles off the band’s 1986 album.

As you can see below, it’s not tremendously different, though there is alternate footage inserted, and a bit less car smashing than you’ll find in the original.

On May 31, Depeche Mode will continue its singles vinyl box-set releases with Black Celebration: The 12″ Singles and Music For The Masses: The 12″ Singles, a pair of multi-disc collections featuring the original UK 12-inch singles that accompanied each album. (Full tracklists here.)

Each of the box sets covering the band’s 1986 and 1987 albums feature singles pressed on audiophile-quality vinyl remastered from the original tapes. The artwork for the boxes themselves “draws on iconography inspired by the original releases,” while the singles themselves feature their original artwork.
