The track was written by Martin L. Gore and Richard Butler. Produced by James Ford and Marta Salogni.
The accompanying music video was directed by Directed by Anton Corbijn.
Dave Gahan said of the song, “To me, 'Ghosts Again' just captures this perfect balance of melancholy and joy...”
Martin Gore added, “It's not often that we record a song that I just don't get sick of listening to - I'm excited to be able to share it.”
The new album features 12-track, produced by James Ford, with production by Marta Salogni.
The band started ready the album before Andy Fletcher death. But Andy Fletcher did not recorded it.
Dave Gahan told NME about the album without Andy Fletcher, “He never got to hear any of it, which is really sad to me because there are songs on this record where I know he'd be like, 'This is the best thing we've had in years.' I can hear his voice. I can also hear him saying, 'Does every song have to be about death?!'”
