Till Lindemann wrote lyrics for a new song of Roland Kaiser, to be included on the new album of the singer (titled Seelenbahnen) which will be released on May 30th, 2014.
Till and I like each other very much, and asked him if he did not mind to write something for me. He gave me a great text. To create the melody was not so easy.
The song will be titled Ich weiß alles (I know everything) and will probably be one of the songs from Seelenbahnen that Kaiser will debut in the commemorative concert of May 3rd 2014, at the O2 World Arena in Berlin.
