Depeche Mode singer goes solo again

NEW YORK , Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Dave Gahan of the British band Depeche Mode says his second solo album came as something of a surprise.

"We didn't sit down and say, 'Let's do this,' " says Gahan, who worked on his new "Hourglass" with collaborators Christian Eigner, the drummer in Depeche Mode's touring band, and Andrew Phillpott.

"We had some stuff we thought would be for Depeche Mode or a film or something. Within a few weeks we realized we were sort of making a record, so we produced it as such."

"Hourglass" follows Gahan's initial solo outing, "Paper Monsters," which came out in 2003.

With "Hourglass" out, Gahan is concentrating on writing material for the next Depeche Mode album, which the group hopes to record in 2008.
