Breaking the silence

from the Teamrock article, Richard talks about the new Emigrate Album!!-DS

Breaking the silence
Richard updates us on the third Emigrate album, which features a cameo from his old buddy Till

How is the next Emigrate record coming along?

Richard: “Ah man, it’s finished. I changed management, and now I’m putting a team together. There’s some new ideas, maybe a little movie involved… I don’t want to talk so much about it, but I’m just waiting for the right timing to get it out, because I’m so busy right now with Rammstein, and that’s my bread on the table, you know? So it’s important that I be there 100%. And if there’s some free time between them, I’ll definitely come back to put it out. I really want to finish it, because I want to do another one. I have so many other ideas at the moment that I wanna do with Emigrate. So it’s coming soon. Probably this year, somehow.”

You’ve done a duet with Till called Let’s Go. What does it sound like?

“It sounds like Till and Richard singing together, a buddy song, a friendship song. It’s kind of electronic, and I don’t know… it just sounds like Richard and Till.”

What inspired you to write it?

“Well… we are friends, from a long time ago… ha ha ha ha! When you have to work with someone for 20 years, it turns your friendship into being partners, colleagues, or whatever you want to call it, so it’s changing, but I was trying to remind him of all the good times that we had. We have both been through a lot, when we grew up, through good things and bad things, and sometimes you forget that. Sometimes it’s time to remind someone.”
