Listen to Royksopp's Remix of Depeche Mode's Puppets

As any of you Mode-o-philes out there probably already know, Depeche Mode is releasing an album of remixes of their hits throughout the years. The collection includes remixes from former Depeche Mode members Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder, as well as Eric Prydz and other big names. Pitchfork has Royksopp's extremely creative remix of 1981's "Puppets" available to stream and they more or less turn it into an entirely new track by placing the vocal in a very different context. The album will be released on June 7th.

I hate to say this but this remix sounds better then the original song but still Depeche Mode are the pillars of our generation's synthpop and electronic genres.

Thanks for the post.
