Metal queen DORO released yesterday her first German album titled “Für Immer”, via her own label, Rare Diamonds Productions. “Für Immer” is purchasable on clear vinyl exclusively at the Nuclear Blast Mailorder!
In additional news, DORO‘s fans recently made online headlines. Around 4,000 fans voted for DORO in XS Rocks “Queen Of Metal”-Poll in quite a short time, the server simply couldn’t handle the traffic and collapsed!
‘Für Immer’ – a divine ballad, an over-song, a smash hit and forever connected with DORO, who conceived this beautiful track back in 1987.
DORO‘s very first German song ever – and possibly the first track in the history of heavy rock that connected German and English lyrical passages.
‘Für Immer’ celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and that’s why a fitting unique DORO album was released yesterday, October 27th: The German DORO album titled »Für Immer«, which includes 17 German, digitally remasterd DORO tracks, incl. well known songs and fan favourites such as ‘Alles Ist Gut’, ‘Herzblut’, ‘Engel’ and ‘In Liebe Und Freundschaft’.
Additionally DORO has included some extra surprises, with German versions of some of her classics: ‘Give Me A Reason’ (‘Ein Stück Ewigkeit’) and ‘My Majesty’ (‘Jede Seele Tief’) as well as an absolute rarity, ‘Seelied’, which has never been released before.
“It’s a song I wrote ages ago, but now it has finally found its perfect home, on the German album,” explains DORO regarding the song, which she recorded only accompanied with decent guitar tunes and a piano.
DORO‘s brand-new cover version of David Bowie‘s immortal hit ‘Heroes’ (‘Helden’), is one of the highlights of the album, which will be available on CD and limited 2LP picture disc (plus two bonus tracks, ‘Tausend Mal Gelebt’ and ‘Für Immer’). The track was previously released as a 7″ single.
“‘Heroes’ is one of my all-time favourites, the song also works very well in German,” DORO explains. Speaking about her connection to the late megastar Bowie, she continues: “We met regularly in the 90’s since we both recorded and rehearsed a lot in the famous SIR Studio in New York. Bowie‘s guitarist, Earl Slick, even played on ‘In Freiheit Stirbt Mein Herz’ from my »Machine II Machine« album (1995). Earl is an outstanding guitar player – and the song is, of course, also a part of the new »Für Immer« record.”
DORO‘s first German only album was released on her new, recently established label, Rare Diamonds Productions. With the foundation of her own label, a long-time dream of the metal icon came true. “Now I’m able to realise my ideas and fulfil the wishes of the fans,” she says. “It was about time to finally release all my beautiful German songs as one album. A lot of fans had asked for this for a long time.”
She adds: “On Rare Diamonds Productions, nice collector’s box sets, re-releases and rarities will see the light of day from time to time. We also focus on picture discs and shaped vinyls – we want to do it the old school way how the fans like it the most.”
