RAMMSTEIN                                ‘ ZEIT ‘

    Rammstein’s new album Zeit will be released on April 29, 2022. Exactly three years after their untitled multi-platinum album, one of the most globally successful German bands of all time is releasing a follow-up!

    The first single to be released by Rammstein today, March 10, 2022, is the title track “Zeit”, a powerful ballad that builds to a towering epic.

    The video  world premiere  of the video was released at the same time on the band’s official YouTube channel.

    Rumors have been buzzing around, now it’s official: Rammstein’s new album Zeit will be released on April 29, 2022. The eighth album from the Berlin musicians follows the untitled number one album that shot the band straight to the top of 14 international charts in 2019, after the longest break between albums of their career to date.

    Till Lindemann (vocals), Paul Landers (guitar), Richard Z. Kruspe (guitar), Flake (keyboards), Oliver Riedel (bass) and Christoph Schneider (drums) spent two years working on the eleven songs on the new album. They were once again assisted by Berlin producer Olsen Involtini. Zeit was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in St. Rémy de Provence, France.

    Bryan Adams managed to get a special scoop for the cover of the new album – the Canadian musician and photographer took the shot of Rammstein on the steps of the Trudelturm in Berlin Adlershof, an imposing monument to aerial research in the city’s Aerodynamic Park.


    Today the eponymous first single is released as a 10” gatefold black vinyl, on CD digipack and in digital format. The video will have its world premiere on the band’s official YouTube channel. The spectacular video was directed by actor and musician Robert Gwisdek, collaborating here with the band for the first time.

    Till Lindemann’s commanding baritone resonates over solemn piano chords and an angelic chorus of sirens. The song deals with transience, our mortality and the precious, fleeting happiness of the perfect moment. “Time, please stand still, stand still,” Lindemann laments and implores. “Time, this should always go on so/Time, it’s so beautiful, so beautiful/Anyone knows the perfect moment.”

    After an epic like this, you need a moment’s rest, and Rammstein give it to us. Fans can look forward to a total of three versions of “Zeit.”

    For the B-sides, the band is releasing a meditative, atmospheric neoclassical arrangement by Grammy-nominated Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Ólafur Arnalds, as well as a remix by electro producer Robot Koch.

    Over the course of a career spanning almost 30 years, Rammstein have sold more than 20 million albums around the world and played countless spectacular, groundbreaking tours. When the band’s sold-out stadium tour had to be postponed due to the pandemic, Rammstein used the time to work on their new album.

    Rammstein fans can look forward to multiple Zeit formats on 29 April – the new album will be released as a standard CD in a digipack with a 20-page booklet, a special edition CD in a 6-panel digipack with a 56-page booklet including slipcase, and as a double 180g vinyl LP with a 20-page large-format booklet, as well as in the usual digital formats.

    With the new album Zeit and a major European and North American tour in spring and summer 2022, one thing is already certain: It’s going to be a big Rammstein year!


    [ Intro ]
    Some should, some shouldn’t
    We can see, but we are blind
    We cast shadows without light

    [Verse 1]
    After us there will be a “prior”
    Youth will turn into hardship
    We keep dying until we live
    We die alive to death
    We are drifting towards the end
    No rest, only striving forward
    Infinity waves on the shore
    Caught in the flow of time

    Please stand still, stand still
    This should keep going forever

    [Verse 2]
    Warm body will soon turn cold
    Future can’t be conjured
    Do not tolerate any stay
    Create and immeaditely destroy
    I’m lying here in your arms
    Oh, could it just be forever!
    But time knows no mercy
    Already, the moment is over…
