Lindemann — the bizarre, freewheeling side project of Rammstein's Till Lindemann and Hypocrisy's Peter Tägtgren — just released their sophomore album, Frau & Mann, a.k.a F & M, an eclectic collection of 11 songs drawing from metal, industrial, techno, hip-hop, classical and even tango. Yet, as notable as the music is, the LP's accompanying music videos have been stealing the spotlight — from "Steh Auf" starring Peter Stormare of Fargo fame to the AI-fueled "Ich Weiß Es Nicht" to "Knebel," a visual so graphic that it only aired once in its uncensored form. Now comes a seven-minute short film for the album's title track, which was filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia, and sees the return of Stormare, as well as a cameo by Ukrainian singer Svetlana Loboda, who is rumored to be in a real-life romantic relationship with Till. The big-budget video's bizarre narrative traces a love triangle (or is it a quadrangle?) that involves cosmonauts in outer space and factory workers back on Earth.
"We have no rules," Till commented of the duo's latest endeavors. "It's about the emotions. We also want to create something new, something that we haven't done before, whether it's with Lindemann or our other bands." Tägtgren added, "We don't know what the result is going to be, we're just going crazy. If it makes us happy, then it's done." Watch "Frau & Mann" above.
