For their upcoming release of the “Planet of Me” EP, Audra have covered the Depeche Mode song “Dreaming of me”, and the version is rather good to be honest. The EP is the band’s 3rd single from “Dear Tired Friends”. The title track comes along with 3 previously unreleased B-sides: the aforementioned cover of Depeche Mode’s 1981 single “Dreaming of Me” and 2 versions of “Falling” – one reimagined by Lycia and the other by Unto Ashes.

Note that the cover for “Dreaming of Me” was commissioned by Indiegogo supporter Greg Watkins-Colwell. Good choice Greg!

You can check the cover below.

Formed in 1991 by Chicago-raised brothers Bart and Bret Helm, the band released 2 albums with Projekt Records in the early 2000s. 2009 saw the release of “Everything Changes” while their 4th LP “Dear Tired Friends” hit the racks in Aug 2019.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
