Wir sind am Leben - the album

The album "Wir sind am Leben" saw its release on September 23rd, 2011. The long-awaited new album featured 11 new songs - 10 of them performed by AnNa on leadvocals and 1 by Peter. The songs on the album were in may ways more catchy than on the previous one, "Die Suche geht weiter". Many up-tempo tunes with certain influences taken in one case from South America. The title song is a type of Rosenstolz' own "The Winner Takes It All" and there seems to be more influences from ABBA as for instance a child choir singing behind AnNa in one song. Peter sings his composition "Mein Leben im Aschenbecher" for "real" this time instead for sing-talk and it sounds extremely good. AnNa is absolutely on the top of her vocal form.

 

   

The album was released as CD, CD+DVD-package and as a special box-package with some extras. It is even available as vinyl with gatefold cover.
