Message from Anna and Peter
When Anna and I
went into the long, indefinite break in 2011, I was of course glad and grateful
after a good 20 years of Rosenstolz to do something different as well and I was
not particularly interested in our songs and recordings. But of course, after so
many years now, I became curious again and, funny enough, I fell in love with
the songs and recordings most of the time when driving a car (of course I was
always a passenger!).
On our last album there were more songs that we wanted to release later and an equally charming version of "My Life in the Ashtray". But above all a song was very important to us and in retrospect I regretted it so much that it was never released: "If it starts now"
So in the last two years we started to work on this song in cozy moments in the studio. After that, the other songs were added - all of course without changing anything on Anna's vocals.
The idea was to make a best-of album, one that Anna and I like and somehow describes the journey that Rosenstolz made. We also found more and more "treasures". For example, "I wear white today (because you are dead)". A song that unfortunately did not fit in with the recordings of "Kassengift".
The standard version will be a brimful double CD, with all the songs you might want to call "hits". When compiling, we noticed that so many songs needed a gentle renovation - most of course not, they have their charm just the way they are. But especially "The Moment", "Sex in the Hotel" and "Let Them Talk", with Lorenz Allacher, who died too early, on the saxophone, had done it to us.
It was important not to make anything too "modern", it should always be only useful to the song. It was just about letting the songs sound as nice as possible.
An absolute favorite song of mine is the original version of "Give Me Sun". The verses tell a completely different story, than the final version - much sadder and in the end: Celebrate life!
In addition, there will be a great deluxe version, with a total of four CDs and a DVD with all Rosenstolz videos.
On these two additional CDs are the rarities. Not so well-known B-sides, Rough-Mixes or alternative versions (one of my favorites is "I prefer to live unusual") and some other songs that unfortunately never "made" us to finish them. But also bizarre songs that have never been released and are only available in an absolute demo version.
More about everything there is to hear soon from Anna and me directly. Because we interview each other and tell a lot about the old and also about the "new" songs. There is also a beautiful video from this minute of our long-time friend and companion Jörn Hartmann. When I saw this for the first time, tears ran down my face.
A huge thank you already goes to all the musicians who have worked with us in the many years - in the studio and of course on the stage and all of you out there!
Anna and I hope you enjoy listening to the songs!

Peter remixes Agnetha
Peter has – together with his team Daniel Faust and Ulf
Sommer – produced a new mix of „Dance your pain away“ performed by Agnetha
Fältskog. The version was sent out as an alternate version to all German radio
The new version „Dance your pain away (D.U.P. RMX)“ surprises as a very fresh, modern and sexy pop song. Peter states: „It was a great pleasure to work with the single files of the song, to find a new vision of the album version and create something that is different and surprising. We all feel very honoured that we got the allowance to work on this song. We did it with a lot of fun and full of respect. Agnetha is such a great artist and we really appreciate that she and her team gave us the chance to work on this song and create something different.“

Bleibt das immer so

Peter's first solo album
"Schüchtern ist mein Glück" (Shiness is my happiness) was released in Germany on April 5th in two versions - the 12-track-CD and a limited deluxe edition. The limited deluxe double-CD-edition features five bonus tracks - two demos and three songs from the album performed in English as well as instrumental versions of all album tracks. Absolutely stunning album with great music and some absolutely great ballads. One of highlights is definitively "Schöner war's mit dir" - a classical Peter composition with great vocals as well as "Kapitän" recorded in both German and English for this release. The first single from the album "Wir beide sind musik" is the opening track on the album - an up-tempo track as well as the title song "Schüchtern ist mein Glück". Rosenstolz have always been known for high quality of music and lyrics and the same goes for Peter as all 12 compositions on the album are extremely strong numbers.
