I’ve always found it kinda weird that Black Sabbath and Depeche Mode used the same stock photo for their Born Again and New Life (12”) covers. It’s pretty unlikely they’d be huge fans of each other, so this is maybe just a weird coincidence.

  • Thanks for pointing this out. This has bugged me for decades. Was it an accident? An inside joke?

  • i think the link you included explained it pretty thoroughly from the ozzy side (which came second) – [https://www.black-sabbath.com/2004/06/depeche_mode/](https://www.black-sabbath.com/2004/06/depeche_mode/)

    they both used the image from the mind alive book (the sabbath one majorly changed). i can see why depeche chose that image since it perfectly captures “new life”
