On April 28, one day before the official release of Rammstein’s new album Zeit, fans will have the exclusive opportunity to see, hear and experience the eleven new songs as a premiere and in a spectacular way in Dolby Atmos sound format. This one-night-only event will be held in selected cinemas worldwide and will comprise music videos and specially commissioned visuals to complement each new song.
There will be music videos for three songs, two of which will be familiar. The third video will premiere at the cinema that night. The remaining eight songs will be presented with graphics on the screen. For a complete list of the theaters where the listening party will take place, visit zeit.rammstein.de.
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.
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.
Fans can look forward to multiple Zeit formats. 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.
Rammstein are scheduled to kick off the European leg of the band’s 2022 tour on May 15 in Prague, Czech Republic. A North American stadium run will begin on August 21 in Montreal and end on October 4 in Mexico City.
