Joachim Witt became a major star of the German pop scene during the Eighties with huge hits such as "Herbergsvater" and "Der Goldene Reiter". He was one of the biggest names of the so-called "Neue Deutsche Welle" (new German wave), which performers like Nena and Falco were also a part of. He made a huge comeback at the end of the Nineties, when he scored a major hit with "Die Flut", a duet with Peter Heppner, the singer of Wolfsheim. ‘Die Flut’ remains one of the most unusual hits in German music history and then... in 2012 he surprised everyone again with “Gloria”, one of the most poignant songs ever about love and loss: When someone like Joachim Witt prepares to release an album full of electro anthems in the year 2014, there’s one thing we shouldn’t expect, and that’s compromises.

Neumond is his 14th studio album, and that’s exactly how many times Witt has broken down barriers over the course of his career – Over the years Witt has given us crystal-clear synth pop, the odd bit of brutalist industrial funk, even venturing into Europop wasn’t out of the question. Witt’s music began to take on a harder edge year by year, to the point of remorselessness by the third part of his ‘Bayreuth’ series. Yet there is one thing all of his works have in common: they’ve always been absolutely without compromise in terms of what they represented. And now the same is true of Neumond, on which yet this shy artist has managed to fulfill a musical dream: a duet with Lisa Gerrard, the female half of the duo DEAD CAN DANCE, to be found on the bonus CD of the album! In case you’re wondering why this gem isn’t on the actual album, the reason is simple: it wouldn’t have fitted into the overall picture of the record, it would have been a compromise. And that’s something Joachim Witt just doesn’t do.

Released April 2014 on Oblivion.
