5 years after Alan Wilder's last solo album, the highly acclaimed "Liquid" CD released under the Recoil moniker in March 2000, the former Depeche Mode member has confirmed to Side-Line that he will start up his studiowork again this year. The very last material by the hand of Alan Wilder was the additional production on Paul Kendallís "Capture" album (namely on the track "Coma Idyllique", see our interview with Paul Kendall) out on 0101 records under the name of The Digital Intervention. As our last interview with Alan Wilder in March 2004 shows, Wilder - who is responsible for the captivating sound on a string of Depeche Mode hits - has been enjoying the past few years spending time with his family and taking a break from the music business. Wilder: "I've been enjoying all the things I never seemed to have time for when I was in the studio. They include travelling, re-kindling relationships with other members of the Wilder family, spending time with my kids and helping with their upbringing, spending time with Hep and taking her out occasionally, building a new glass courtyard, entertaining friends, playing tennis, walking, watching cricket, decorating, and drinking Campari while enjoying the best English summer we've had for a century." Wilder plans to start work again this autumn. The Recoil website Shunt will feature information regarding forthcoming releases etc on due time. In the meantime, Dave Gahan confirmed our colleagues from D-Side that Alan Wilder wants to rework several songs from Depeche Mode, in particular titles from "Songs of faith and devotion" and "Violator", in the light of new technology such as suround sound and 5.1 mix sound. It adds up to what we reported a few months ago, namingly that Mute has plans to reissue the band's back catalogue with "101" being a first test. More news as we get it.

Anytime Alan Wilder releases something is good news. Recoil is absolutely brilliant. DM has suffered from not having him in the band. As a duo (trio, yeah, right) DM has shaped up quite a bit with the last release though, and I appreciate Dave Gahans new efforts, but i still think it would all have been better with Alan still on board.

Great news! I can't wait for more details about Recoil!

Great news to hear!
Last I heard, Alan was going to do away with the "spoken word" in his material. Sure hope so!
I wasn't a big fan of Liquid and Unsound Methods had some hard to swallow tracks in it but still, Alan's music is superb!
Can't wait for the new material.

Sure Alan was a great contribution to Depeche Mode, when he was with them. But he solo stuff after DM was not really good in my opinion.

I wish he would rework some new DM materials from the new album :)

now that would be too cool.

but, its good to hear, he is gona make a comeback. He is and will always remain the KING of synth.

Christ it's about time, can't wait.

i don't think that liquid was soooo good material. IMHO bloodline was - and still it is - the best recoil work, musically. unsound methods was a great work too, but liquid is way way behind them... anyway, i'm waiting for the new lp...

It's going to sound awesome!! Cannot wait to add to my collection!!!! Alan Rules!

So EMI gave him an offer to step back into the studio he could not refuse?, I wonder!

Posted by: Sabrina on Sep 17, 05 | 2:41 am

Yesssss! I can't wait. I hope he will play live...

Posted by: Ikki on Sep 16, 05 | 6:39 pm

Yeah!!! I can't wait!!!
