According to German website bild.de, Heino has been invited to join Rammstein in Wacken Open Air. Heino should perform Sonne alongside Till Lindemann.
Heino – “Mit freundlichen Grüßen”
Heino is a German singer who released earlier this year a cover album titled “Mit freundlichen Grüßen”. One of the covers is for the music Sonne. To create controversy in Germany, Heino claimed Rammstein intended to halt the release of his album (such statement was quickly denied by the band). This invitation shows that Rammstein keeps no resentments regarding the statement of the singer.
Out of curiosity, at the second concert in Wuhlheide this May, Till Lindemann wore a blonde wig and sunglasses during Sonne, in order to parody Heino.

According to Landers, the band might “start thinking” on a new album next year, but it is still early to talk about this possibility. He also mentioned the upcoming live DVD and revealed the possibility of releasing a documentary:
“First we’ll take a break. We will take our time. For now, it is very vague. We’ll start thinking about it next year. We are on a couple of projects: a live DVD and a documentary film in cinemas.“
