Enjoy The Silence is fast becoming (if not already) the most covered Depeche Mode song in the band’s history.
American rock-electronica fusion artist KI Theory covered it back in 2014, but his version is about to get a lot of attention.
It is being used in the trailer for Ghost In The Shell, an upcoming sci-fiction movie directed by Rupert Sanders (the Brit behind 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman).
The lead role is played by Scarlett Johansson, with support from Juliette Binoche, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Putt and Takeshi Kitano.
When you see the trailer you will immediately realise that Depeche Mode’s original version was clearly nowhere near RAWK enough to be used for what appears to be a full-on action-fest of a movie 🙂
The film is due to be released in March 2017.
Here is the clip:

Irony factoid: Sanders once directed an award-winning television ad for the computer game series, Halo.
