Rammstein unveil new single and release date

Rammstein (2009) Rammstein will release "Pussy," with B-side "Rammlied," on Sept. 22 as the first single from their forthcoming album on Oct.20.

The single, available exclusively via iTunes, is the first new music to come from the Berlin-based band in over four years. Having sold three million albums in the U.S. alone (and over 14 million worldwide), anticipation for the new album, whose title has been a closely guarded secret, is high with rumors running rampant worldwide as to the theme and contents of the new release. The album will be released in the U.S. via Universal Music Germany through a marketing and distribution deal with Vagrant Records on Oct. 20.

A post on from the band's website this morning heralded the news of the first available music via the "Pussy" single: "Carried by a gigantic wave of testosterone, Rammstein unsheathes its sword and presents what makes man an animal. So start your engines. With pedal to the metal on the Autobahn of German cliches, where homage is paid to the hand-to-hand battle between the sexes with words like Bratwurst, Blitzkrieg, and Mercedes-Benz … to destinations abroad, past Heidi with her burgers and away from the German Fräuleinwunder." An accompanying video was directed by Jonas Åkerlund,; premiere information coming soon.

Pre-production for the new album was done at Castle Beesenstedt in eastern Germany's Halle/Saale while the bulk of the recording was done in late 2008 at Northern California's Sonoma Mountain Studio. As with the band's previous releases, the new album was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hellner in Stockholm.
