Songs of Faith and Devotion is the eighth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. It was first released on 22 March 1993 in the United Kingdom by Mute Records and a day later in the United States by Sire Records and Reprise Records. The album incorporated a more aggressive, darker rock-oriented tone than its predecessor Violator (1990), largely influenced by the emerging alternative rock and grunge scenes in the United States.

The new, and tenth, Depeche Mode album "Songs Of Faith And Devotion" is one of the most eagerly awaited albums of 1993. Their last album "Violator" was their most successful to date and after the tour finished, playing to 1,200,000 people over eight months, the group decided to take a one year sabbatical. It took the young Essex group only three weeks to record their first album, "Speak And Spell", in 1981

Fortunately, the demos Gore submitted were just what Gahan was craving for; bluesy, riff-based numbers that begged for a singer with the right kind of passion. Songs Of Faith And Devotion is the stand-out, the odd blip in Depeche Mode's repertoire of albums. Synthesisers are pushed to the back, becoming bubbling bass-lines rather than carrying tunes or developing into catchy riffs. Nowhere is this more obvious than on the first track and also the first single, 'I Feel You'.

Upon its release, Songs of Faith and Devotion reached number one in several countries, and became the first Depeche Mode album to debut atop the charts in both the UK and the US. To support the album, Depeche Mode embarked on the fourteen-month-long Devotional Tour, the largest tour the band had ever undertaken to that date. Recording the album and the subsequent tour exacerbated growing tensions and difficulties within the band, prompting Alan Wilder to quit, making this album the final with him as a band member
