LONDON, November 2021 – Hublot loves Dave Gahan! The legendary Depeche Mode front-man, Rock and Roll hall of fame inductee, and Hublot Friend of the Brand has just released Imposter with his long-time collaborators Soulsavers. The new album is a story of songs, a stunning collection of soulful, poignant covers drawn from a rich tapestry of artists who’ve influenced his life and career in music, including Bob Dylan, Eartha Kitt and PJ Harvey. The album is Dave’s third collaboration with Soulsavers, following The Light & The Dead See in 2012 and Angels & Ghosts in 2015.

Hublot is proud to announce it will be the Official Partner of Dave’s solo tour, which begins on December 5th. Tickets for the first show at London’s Coliseum sold out instantly, prompting a second date on December 7th at London’s Shepherd’s Bush. Paris will welcome Dave Gahan’s solo tour at the Salle Pleyel on December 10th and the Berlin show will be held at the Admiralpalast on December 13th.Further tour dates and other special events will be announced in due course.

Hublot and Depeche Mode’s creative collaboration began in 2010. Through the partnership, there have been 5 various collections launched, while Hublot has been honoured to first support the band’s activities in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust in 2009, and then the non-profit organisation Charity:water.

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012. The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth. Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratchresistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico,
Meca-10, Tourbillon). HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions League, UEFA EUROTM) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Chiara Ferragni, Pelé, Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Novak Djokovic). Discover the HUBLOT universe at our network of boutiques located in key cities across the globe: Geneva, Paris, London, New York, Hong Kong, Dubai, Tokyo, Singapore, Zurich and at HUBLOT.com
We love Dave Gahan! It’s been an incredible journey working with Dave and Depeche Mode and supporting their tours and their charity projects over the years. It brought us such great
joy to hear his new material and see him touring with Soulsavers again. What a voice! What a talent!”
Ricardo Guadalupe

”Hublot have been such great partners of ours for such a long time now – and I’m so pleased to be working with Ricardo and his team again. Putting Imposter together with Soulsavers has been a deep and soulful experience and I’m proud that we’ve made such a special record. I’m excited to be able to perform and present this special album live, starting here in London in December. And with special thanks to Hublot for the continued support and partnership.” Dave Gahan
