Till Lindemann talking about the lyrics:
Q: How did you go about writing this one differently to how you might have written a Rammstein track aside from the fact that it’s in English. You were obviously working with Peter as well, is there anything in particular you can tell us?
Till: After doing 6 records and everything in German it was really refreshing to go with a different language. Totally new phrases, new hook lines, chorus lines it’s like a little boy in a candy shop, grabbing everything, take as much as he can. I had a couple of problems like with my grammar and expression and stuff like this but in the end it was really refreshing to do it in a different language. I wasn’t sure about it in the beginning so peter encouraged me a lot to continue because he is more experienced for almost 30 years doing music in English and so I start slowly but within the time I am cool with everything my writing and expression. It was kind of hard. I grow up in the east part of Germany we had no English in school we had to learn Russian and to learn my English with touring with Rammstein in America and England and stuff like that…so it comes years later.
Q: Okay so you mention when writing the album you had to focus on things like grammar. Did you find that writing the album actually did help improve your English?
Till: Yeh of course. Sitting down, I have so many dictionaries and like English rhyme read. I spent a lot of time it was worth it. In the end I can hold up a record in English for a guy who comes from east party of Germany it’s really good.
Q: I think that that’s very impressive. Do you think you will write any more English material in the future?
Till: I would love to of course. In September I go back to my Rammstein colleagues we’re starting pre-production for the next record and I don’t know when to find the time in-between but maybe of course I do the Rammstein things in German but in between the working process I can go sneaking out, do some more English stuff and do something with Peter in between. I don’t have time pressure, that’s the good thing I can do whatever I want. I can like get a job maybe doing both.
