Depeche Mode has confirmed plans to release a new album, titled Spirits, which they're aiming to release next spring.

In the meantime, they've announced a lengthy run of shows as part of the Global Spirit Tour. The trek begins next May with a massive European stadium schedule as well as North and South American dates expected to follow next summer, although those have yet to be released.

While there's no word yet on an official album release date, the band has been working with producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + the Machine). "He's helped us to make what we feel is a very incredible sounding record," singer Dave Gahan told Rolling Stone, adding: "He was able to really guide us."

As was the case with Depeche Mode's 2013 tour, a portion of proceeds from next year's run will benefit charity:water, which has a mission of ensuring everyone in the world has access to safe drinking water. The band's last tour raised $1.4 million for the organization.
