Black Celebration is the fifth studio album by English electronic music band Depeche Mode, released on 17 March 1986 by Mute Records. The album further cemented the darkening sound created by Alan Wilder, which the band later used for the acclaimed and globally successful albums Music for the Masses, Violator, and Songs of Faith and Devotion; a sound that was initially hinted towards on their albums Construction Time Again and Some Great Reward.
The album entered the UK charts the week after its release at no. 4, making it their most successful to date and their highest placed album of the decade in their native country. The band said in 1998 during an interview available on The Videos 86–98 DVD, Black Celebration has been cited as one of the most influential albums of the 1980s. To promote the album, the band embarked on the Black Celebration Tour.
Three years after its release, Spin ranked it at number 15 in its list of “The 25 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
