Depeche Mode - Exciter (CD)
- Release Date: 6/30/2017
Debuting at #9 on the UK Albums chart and #8 on the Billboard 200, EXCITER was the first occasion of an album by the band debuting higher in America than in the UK, but the UK got its revenge with the singles. Although only one track made the Hot 100 – “Dream On,” the album’s first single – and even then only charting at #85, Depeche Mode scored three top-20 singles at home: “Dream On” (#6), “I Feel Loved” (#12), and “Freelove” (#19). It’s also of note that, although it wasn’t a hit in either the US or the UK, “Goodnight Lovers” was a top-20 hit in Ireland, France, and Germany, and it went all the way to #4 in Italy.
