"Freelove" is a song by English electronic group Depeche Mode. It was released in November 2001 as the third single from their album Exciter.

The B-side is an instrumental called "Zenstation".

There is also a DVD release of "Freelove", a first for Depeche Mode. It contained video footage of "Freelove" from the Philadelphia concert in 2001, as well as audio of some of the other songs. It also contained four bonus 30-second videos of the band. The videos were directed by Anton Corbijn.

Music video[edit]

The main music video for "Freelove" was directed by John Hillcoat. The video features Depeche Mode performing on a parade float riding in a poor neighborhood. The downtrodden residents eventually start following the float, and the video ends with two people kissing. It was not available on a public release prior to Video Singles Collection (2016).
