Depeche Mode have unveiled the video for the band's new single 'Heaven'. Watch it below.

The clip sees the band performing in an abandoned church, under a light show - while a masked couple and a tree slowly appear before them. Standard night out for Depeche Mode, then.

'Heaven' was released today, and is a mournful slow-burner of a track, filled with the band's trademark buzzy synths and moody keyboards - and it's already inspiring mixed reactions among fans.

Speaking about the upcoming album Delta Machine, Martin Gore said, "Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern.

"I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It's just got something magical about it."

Dave Gahan added, "With this release we've completely shifted our idea of how to create an album.

"When we hit a wall where we realise the album is beginning to sound too normal, we'll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. Delta Machine is no different, and I can't wait for all of our fans to hear it."

Below, the big albums of 2013: Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Arcade Fire and more
