Depeche Mode have joked that sessions for the next album have been "no fun", as they've given Q a unique insight into the recording process.
Speaking in a studio report in our new issue, Q318 out now, the trio show us round their New York recording studio.
"We've been joking there's been no fun on this record," declares Martin Gore. "Last time, we had a table football; three teams played each other every day. So imagine how many hours we've saved without it."
Get our new issue, out now, for the full report including a first listen to some of the band's new tracks, plus we look at a host of other albums that are also in the works.
