Depeche Mode has released new HD footage of former member Alan Wilder sounchecking the band’s classic ballad “Somebody” with Martin Gore last Wednesday in advance of their performance of that song at a Teenage Cancer Trust charity concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall that night — a performance that would mark Wilder’s first with Depeche Mode in 16 years.
For fan-shot video of Wilder’s appearance, as well as other DM performances from that night, go here; we’ve also got news footage of Wilder and Gore discussing the reunion.
UPDATE: 2/25/10: Depeche Mode has now posted a short interview with Wilder. See below.
