The great journey continues. Five years after their debut album sat the Berlin duo Ich + Ich another turning point in their continuous production process. Despite steady live presence, the sound and song work was since the last album "From the same star" in summer 2007 continue without Kunstpausen. The ribbon-constellation of I + I made it happen.
"Since I have acquitted me from the beginning of tour operation, I could just keep working on the songs," says Annette Humpe "Apart from my duties and responsibilities as a mother." Frontman Adel Tawil adds. "Our third album fOr me a symbiosis of live and studio. My voice has evolved through the many appearances. It is rough and become to a certain extent also adult. We have introduced in the album. Even though unconsciously and without any fixed idea. "
As I + I at that time still registered and masterplanlos started their musical project, nobody would have - at least Herself - expected that extraordinary success their "odd-couple lineup" once achieved would. With over 1.3 million albums sold and three gold and platinum singles in direct succession have, I + I produced by "From the same star" the most successful German pop album of the Present Time. And without much hype or even media-friendly scandals and scandals. They are just music. "In addition certainly that Annette's emotional lyrics reach a really wide audience," adds Adel Tawil. "And as I know from many live encounters, the people are really touched. That goes through all walks of life. From teenagers to old Ideal fans. We have never competed as a youth cultural thing that would be hard progressive and avant-garde. We were and are pop. and somehow this formula has found a sustainable audience. "
12 songs had finally emerged from this process work for the final version of "Bon Voyage". "In the studio came with Adel Tawil from a living entity. Time sits the original version after a few takes. Time we wrestle each stanza." The issues raised by Adel Tawil live experiences Express themselves in carefully reduced episodes. Life and love experiences are interwoven in this way in dense (sound) images. From more opulent "I'm sorry" to the subdued Slow Waltz variant "Alone Dancing" have I + I very carefully monitored subtleties, without falling into a pretentious mannerisms. "Of course we are meticulous worker, which is well known," says Annette. "But here we always have the pop component in mind." Conspicuous (because of the "flow" to lowest) are the two songs "Thank You" and "The Living and the Dead", where Annette Humpe the microphone Accepts. Irrespective of the youthful freshness and insouciance that radiates her voice, it is the choice of topics that protrudes from the I + I-subject: "Thank you" is an almost euphoric hymn to the proverbial little people, the daily push their arduous job , Nurses, garbage collectors, taxi drivers ... "I hope I have no one forget," Annette Humpe tells her version of "Fanfare to the common man."
It is probably a design of maximum freedom within a fixed formation that make I + I so outstanding. Adel Tawil says he is "100% I + I" and had simultaneously with Cassandra Steen ( "City") has a number-two Dauerhit in the German charts. In 2007 he was able to win even one place together with rapper Azad in "Prison Break" -Titelsong. "That's more or less a fluke," he appeases, "born from the collaboration with musicians, I guess. When they are finally gone off so I was already back with Ich + Ich tour. "If Annette rather casually told that she has again released a jazz album on a specialized independent label, it shows once again that here speak true musicians. The be Although POP have taken up the cause, but the shallows and handed down life and behavior style-honored Popstars confidently dispense can.
With their third album "Bon Voyage" shot I + I immediately after the market release in November 2009 to the top of national charts. Pioneer of this was the spectacular preliminary single "patch" that have been previously been court number 1 of the German Top 100 occupied.
