'Heaven' Directed by Tim Saccenti
Depeche Mode are back with Heaven. Their first single from their forthcoming album Delta Machine. The music video was directed by Timothy Saccenti and shot at The Marigny Opera House, a former catholic church in the Faubourg Marigny in New Orleans.
Previously, Tim had directed the In-Studio Collage 2012 video for Angel that was premiered at the band's press conference in Paris on October 2012. The video's look was inspired by Terence Malick's 2011 film The Tree of Life, with its beautiful yet twisted, dark imagery. "Mainly it’s a performance video, which we haven’t done in a long time," Gahan stated.
