Director Timothy Saccenti on the video concept:

Depeche Mode approached me to direct the video for their first single, “Heaven” as a continuation of the campaign we began with our studio film for their track “Angel.” The album is a mix of blues and electronics and that was my starting point for the concept. In order to delve into the voodoo vibe we traveled to New Orleans to soak it up and find a suitable local… in the end, a beautiful abandoned church. This was to be the bands first proper performance video in ages so the location was very important … I came up with a concept that mixed a symbolic story with hints of voodoo and imagery, keeping in mid the bands rich visual history but updating it with my own twist.
