Out now is Color Theory’s double A-side single “Sometimes + The Things You Said”. The pair of Depeche Mode cover songs form a medley of sorts, with each borrowing elements from the other. Brian Hazard explains: “The two tracks were pulled from a recent reissue of ‘Color Theory presents Depeche Mode’, a tribute album originally released in 2003.”

The remastered CD comes in a 6- panel Digipak with all new artwork and three new tracks. For a limited time, you can get the CD at any price, including free, at

For those who will remember (and who were born between 1970 and 1983) the Color Theory track “Ponytail Girl” from 2001 which sparked mass confusion when it spread like wildfire on Napster, mislabeled as a Depeche Mode B-side. And actually, 21 years later we still see the track popping up in all kinds of bootlegs as being a so-called unreleased Depeche Mode track. On the basis of that incident, he went on to create “Color Theory presents Depeche Mode”.
