The boy with the guitar, who once played in pedestrian zones and still had to finance his first album 'Laufen Lernen' through crowdfunding campaigns, is now one of the most relevant German pop artists. Hits such as '80 Millionen', 'Wenn sie tanzt', 'Legenden' or "Auf das, was da noch kommt" contributed to one of the most rapid career rises in recent pop history and have recently come to be regarded as evergreens that everyone now knows - young or old. Or to put it in Max's words: "It's crazy what will happen in a few years." Let's not fool ourselves: That Max Giesinger, as announced in the first line of his new single, will someday throw his cell phone into the sea will probably never happen.
"Artistic freedom," says Max and grins. But freedom is a good word in this context at all, because at its core, that's exactly what 'Irgendwann ist jetzt' is about. Above all, Max has taken the liberty to let things be quiet for a while. For that he was offline. And that for several months. Focusing on himself and many of his song ideas that were buzzing around in his head.
"I'm finally starting to believe that everything I need has always been inside me," that's a powerful realization and perhaps the most important line of his new single, which Max wrote in the summer of 2020 with his best buddy Steffen Graef and Joe Walter. It has become an anthem of personal responsibility, this piece. And he can write hymns like hardly anyone else in this country.
'Irgendwann ist jetzt' is a great prelude to a new album coming later this year. With songs that balance as close to Giesinger's emotional center as rarely before. Childhood, family, his own inability to relate: nothing is left untouched, no pain untreated. Exciting, isn't it? One thing is already clear: we can all hardly wait for the upcoming tour. Secure tickets and anticipation at 100 percent!
