Comprising material from 'Black Celebration' and 'Music For The Masses'...

Depeche Mode have announced two new 12 inch box sets incorporating the singles from 'Black Celebration' and 'Music For The Masses'.

The synth-pop legends launched the project last year, and will continue the box set series on May 31st.

'Black Celebration' was released in 1986, becoming a huge success in the UK and Germany - indeed, Germany remains a key stronghold for the band's fanbase.

Released the following year, 'Music For The Masses' included a lengthy tour that touched on Central Europe, with Depeche Mode becoming pivotal for a young generation throwing off the authoritarian shackles of Communism.

The new release gathers the single releases from these two albums, as well as bonus material.

Out on May 31st with typically lavish packaging, the full tracklisting is below:
