On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the release of Heroes and further to a few live performance of the song onstage, Depeche Mode unveiled a cover of the song and accompanying video by Timothy Saccenti. The British band obviously paid tribute to the late David Bowie.
“”Heroes” is the most special song to me at the moment. Bowie is the one artist who I’ve stuck with since I was in my early teens. His albums are always my go-to on tour and covering ‘Heroes’ is paying homage to Bowie.” Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan told NME.
