Released on 17 April 2009, Sounds of the Universe is the twelfth studio album by Depeche Mode. The album was supported by the 2009–2010 concert tour Tour of the Universe. Three singles were released from the album: Wrong, Peace, and a double A-side of Fragile Tension and Hole to Feed. Perfect was also released in the United States as a promotional single.

Ned Raggett of AllMusic concluded, ‘Sounds of the Universe is a grower, relying on a few listens to fully take effect, but when it does, it shows Depeche Mode are still able to combine pop-hook accessibility and their own take on “roots” music for an electronic age with sonic experimentation and recombination.’

Sounds of the Universe debuted at No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 30,537 copies – the band’s highest-peaking album since chart-topping Ultra (1997). In the United States, the album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, selling 80,000 units in its first week.
