Depeche Mode‘s iconic film collection Strange & Strange Too will be released for the first time on DVD & Blu-Ray by Sony Music Entertainment on December 8.
In the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the title will be released through Warner Music Group.
Filmed from Original Super 8 Sources, the compilation of groundbreaking Depeche Mode videos was directed and filmed by Anton Corbijn. It includes 11 music videos and 6 previously unreleased outtake “vignettes.”
The short films Strange (1988) and Strange Too (1990) were previously available as individual titles in VHS and Laserdisc formats.
According to Depeche Mode, “Anton Corbijn’s photography and art direction have played an indispensable part in the evolution of the Depeche Mode aesthetic. Strange and Strange Too are essential titles in both the Depeche Mode and Anton Corbijn catalogues, and are the perfect example of Anton’s unique ability to capture the spirit of DM on film.”
“The idea to make this into a connected series of little films and fake interviews came late into the process of shooting these,” said Corbijn. “I was shooting all the films myself on black/white Super 8 film. We put all this together on a shoestring budget; those were that kind of days. We have to look at these films in the light of us being young; we were experimenting and I am happy we were given that space at the time by Daniel Miller.”
