LINDEMANN, the project featuring vocalist Till Lindemann of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN and Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN), has released two versions of its new single, "Ich Weiß Es Nicht". The song is taken LINDEMANN's second album, "F & M", which will arrive on November 22. The follow-up to 2015's "Skills In Pills" was once again produced and mixed by Tägtgren. The regular version of the song and a MINISTRY remix of the track are both available below.
"F & M" track listing:
01. Steh Auf
02. Ich Weiß Es Nicht
06. Frau & Mann
07. Ach So Gern
08. Schlaf Ein
10. Platz Eins
11. Wer Weiß Das Schon
12. Mathematik (original version)
13. Ach So Gern (pain version)
In this renewed collaboration, the duo takes some unfamiliar and sometimes unexpected paths.
"Skills In Pills" reached gold status in Germany and was entirely in English. On this second opus, the rules have changed: German lyrics sung by Lindemann's unmistakable voice are set in an intense and unique musical composition.
The starting point of these new LINDEMANN songs was a collaboration between Lindemann and the Hamburg Thalia Theater in the context of a modern adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Hänsel & Gretel", which addresses topics such as fear, hope, poverty, abundance, cannibalism or death.
Five songs from this critically-acclaimed play have been supplemented with six brand new masterpieces to form the impressive new studio work from LINDEMANN.
The first single, "Steh Auf", was released on September 13. The video for this spellbinding song was created by the renowned music video director Zoran Bihać (who worked on previous RAMMSTEIN and LINDEMANN videos). The film was shot in Kazakhstan and one of the main characters is played by a fellow countryman of Tägtgren's, the Hollywood star Peter Stormare ("Fargo").
"F & M" will be released on the following formats:
* Standard edition (6-panel digipack)
* Special edition (deluxe hardcover book)
* 2LP (180-gram black vinyl)
* Digital formats
Last year, Lindemann collaborated with Kurdish German rapper Haftbefehl on a single called "Mathematik". A music video for the song was shot in November at the Berlin nightclub Astra Kulturhaus by Bihać.
RAMMSTEIN is continuing to tour in support of its seventh, untitled album, which came out in May via UME/Spinefarm in Europe and Caroline Records in the U.S.
