Depeche Mode Release Single ‘Enjoy The Silence’ 5|2|1990 #depechemode

Enjoy the Silence’ was the second single from the then upcoming album ’Violater’ & was compared on the B-side with the instrumentals “Memphisto” & “Sibeling”

“Enjoy the Silence” was re-released as a single in 2004 for the Depeche Mode remix project Remixes 81-04, and was titled “Enjoy the Silence (Reinterpreted)” or, “Enjoy the Silence 04”.

When Anton Corbijn presented the concept of the video to the band, which at the time was simply “Dave dressed up as a king, walking around with a deck chair”, they initially rejected it. They changed their minds, when he explained that the idea was that the King (Dave) was represented “a man with everything in the world, just looking for a quiet place to sit”; a king of no kingdom. Andy Fletcher jokes that he favoured the video because “ He only had to do about an hour’s worth of work”.

The video uses a slightly different mix of the album version of the song (the most notable difference being a new and extended introduction) that has not been released in any audio format. The final long shots of the king walking through the snow are not Gahan but rather the video’s producer, Richard Bell. Gahan had left the set, tiring of the cold in Switzerland…
