Dave Gahan Talks 'The Light The Dead See,' on Soundcheck

Dave Gahan in the Soundcheck studio

Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode hooked up with Soulsavers, a British music and production duo, for a musical project, the result of which is the album The Light The Dead See.

Gahan wanted the project to be a proper record with an A-side and a B-side. He believes that as a record begins, it takes you on a journey and then it leaves you in a place of reflection.

"When I was a kid growing up, David Bowie did that for me," Gahan told Soundcheck’s John Schaefer. "Those records, they just took me to a place ― I wanted to go live where he was living."
