joachimwitt ichJoachim Witt is productively as always. After his album ‘Neumond’, released in April 2014 and followed by an extensive tour, he will present his new work ‘ICH’ in this year‘s August already. Although the forerunner releases ‘Neumond’ and ‘DOM’, both reaching Top 10 of the German charts, were developed in collaboration with producers like Martin Engler (Mono Inc.) and Mirko Schaffer (Die Ärzte), Joachim Witt is solely responsible for song writing an production on ‘ICH’.

Joachim Witt wanted to experience what would be created by his very own power and energy without being influenced by producers. Conclusively the new album ‘ICH’ offers exactly the sound wished by the fans: experimental sounds meeting Pop, guitars and electronic. Above all the remarkable chants of Joachim Witt resonate. “An album for old souls!“, you could possibly think while listening to the new composition. And of course there are manifold expectations on ‘ICH’. Friends of ‘Neumond’ wished for something similar, lovers of ‘Bayreuth’ wanted the Neue-Deutsche-Härte-Witt and maybe all the others expected something in-between. But what came out? Nothing like that but the best of it all.

You must be a reflective man full of experiences to not just follow this album but to resonate to it and feel preserved by many songs. It’s a critical album. A present to German music scene by this fact. But it is not only socio-critical but human-, morale- and soul-critical. And it is true and honest – as the singer himself. Perhaps the Witt finding in melodies and texts seems to be a bit bowed and knotted, but always unbroken. He shows off worldly-wise but not without the willingness to resist. Joachim Witt gives his audience an album full of wisdom. He is no denouncer, no provocateur, no rebel. He is ICH, Witt. He widely opens himself and welcomes his listeners‘ opening as well. This is almost a musical catharsis. In fact this album is that good. At least to those who know a lot about themselves.

Who owns scarfs from fights of the past will appreciate the harmful realizations on this album. Witt is able to sting. His musical needles stick intensively where your pain is deep and petrified. And then begin to heal unexpected by some time. Witt is laying his hands – and where his listener allows this tangency it becomes clear: you are not alone with your pain and anger, your disappointments and sorrow. There is always hope inside of you. Do not despair, there is sense in all things. Although this could sound trivial for the young ones – grown up listeners will appreciate this musical gift.

It is not an album for people. But for old souls.
