"Peace" is Depeche Mode's second single from their studio album, Sounds of the Universe, and their 47th UK single overall. It was released on 15 June 2009. Martin Gore told The Sun newspaper that he thought "Peace" is one of his favourite songs that he has ever written. He explained that both "Peace" and "Little Soul", "give the album a kind of thread. Both of those songs have a real spiritual feel, though we have to be really careful using that word."
The song charted at #57 in the UK charts, equal to their first ever single, "Dreaming of Me" in 1981. This is the band's second lowest UK singles chart position after "Little 15", originally intended to be a France-only release which reached #60 upon limited UK release in 1988. In Germany, "Peace" reached #25.
The single version of the song has a completely different introduction.
The music video for "Peace" was filmed in Romania by French duo Jonas & François, it features Romanian actress Maria Dinulescu and marks the first Depeche Mode video to not include any of the band members (because of Dave Gahan's illness), save for a promotional poster near the end.
The single was not released in the USA, where instead "Perfect" was released for promotional purposes only (i.e. non-commercial).
A Dash Berlin remix of "Peace" and a Talla 2XLC remix are also available but do not appear on any of the official releases below.
It is the first single by Depeche Mode not to be issued on 12" vinyl since "Dreaming of Me" in 1981. Fans have reacted angrily to this decision and an on-line petition has been launched to try and convince Mute Records to release it. The petition can be signed at http://www.peace12inch.com
This song was performed on the 1st leg of the band's Tour of the Universe between "Come Back" and "In Your Room", but after the 1st leg was dropped and did not return for the rest of the tour.
