They created songs that for a whole generation would be hymns and lifetime companions — the score music of the last two decades.
Humpe’s texts are life mottos and guidance at the same time. As renown newspaper Die Zeit describes the music as the “Soundtrack for the NDL (New German Coolness)”, this all is showcased for the first time in one place, all hits are united. In addition, there are two new songs “Das Ist Nicht Das Ende Baby” (This Is Not The End Baby) and “Hier Sind Wir Alle” (Here We All Are). Features Paul Kalkbrenner and Jan Oberlaender.
