Released on 27 September 1982, A Broken Frame is the second studio album by Depeche Mode. The album was written entirely by Martin Gore and was recorded after the departure of Vince Clarke, who had left to form Yazoo with singer Alison Moyet. Alan Wilder was part of a second band tour in the United Kingdom prior to the release of A Broken Frame, but had not officially joined yet and does not appear on the album.

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, Ned Raggett described A Broken Frame as ‘a notably more ambitious effort than the pure pop/disco of the band’s debut’, with much of the album ‘forsaking earlier sprightliness for more melancholy reflections about love gone wrong’. He added: ‘More complex arrangements and juxtaposed sounds, such as the sparkle of breaking glass in Leave in Silence, help give this underrated album even more of an intriguing, unexpected edge.’
