"Where's The Revolution" is a song by English electronic band Depeche Mode from their fourteenth studio album Spirit. It was released as the album's first single on 3 February 2017, on the 20th anniversary of "Barrel of a Gun". The cover art was designed by Anton Corbijn. The single was premiered on the Polish radio Trójka - Polskie Radio Program III at midnight on 3 February.[1][2]

Promotion[edit]

The song was premiered audio-only on YouTube. A dystopian-themed black-and-white music video was released a week later, on 9 February. The music video, as well as the animated visuals with flying flags and marching boots for the audio-only video, were directed and designed by Anton Corbijn.[3]

The song is available as digital download from Amazon, HMV, Google Play Music and iTunes. It is also available as a 5-track CD Single, as a double vinyl (containing 9 remixes, released on 28 April 2017) and as an exclusive 7" vinyl promotional release in the April edition of the German music magazine Musik Express, with a live version of a Delta Machine song "Should Be Higher" as B-side.[4]
