It’s been many weeks of highs and lows and quarantine blues that sees German Industrial avant-garde music legends Einstürzende Neubauten releasing their second single from their forthcoming new album Alles in Allem, the groups 40th-anniversary opus, coming out in wake of the Corona-virus pandemic, and their canceled live itinerary—which included their first North American tour in 15 years—which had been delayed ever-long due to visa woes.
In this stylish and cinematically shot split-screen piece for the new record’s title track, frontman Blixa Bargeld sits in front of a piano crooning surreal lyrics in his native tongue, with a silver baritone to match his glittery eyes among ebony, ivory, and wreathed crown of red-red roses.
Watch the video below:
This latest video follows the jazzy clip for “Ten Grand Goldie”, showcasing a pounding drum-driven single that is in the vein of “Die Interliebendem”, which intermittent shots of the album cover’s photoshoot, and Blixa Bargeld intoning phrases while wearing a surgical mask, such as “Now you can fix your pants!” over the fracas din, alongside a young lady playing the trombone.
“Alles in Allem”. Out on May 15th, 2020. The new record will be the group’s first true album work since 2007 (not including 2014’s World War I concept piece Lament.)
