  1. Lilian

    "John the Revelator"/Lilian is the second double A-side single by Depeche Mode and their forty-fourth single overall, released on 5 June 2006. Both songs are featured on Depeche Mode's 2005 album, Playing the Angel and serve as the fourth single from the album (see 2006 in British music). The single became another UK Top 20 hit for the band, reaching number 18. "John the Revelator" was added to BBC 6 Music's B-List, but it failed to make any other BBC playlists or that of Xfm London. It was also played by a few alternative rock radio stations in the US, including WKQX (Chicago), throughout 2006, despite not being released as a single there. "John the Revelator" was edited down several seconds for the single, while "Lilian" was slightly remixed and the introduction was shortened. The single is the first UK double A-side release by the band since "Blasphemous Rumours / Somebody" in 1984. "John The Revelator" was played during Depeche Mode's Touring the Angel tour and can be watched on the tour's DVD.
