Emigrate, the side-project of Rammstein guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe, has released its video for the song "My World". The track comes off the group's upcoming self-titled debut album (due on August 31) as well as the "Resident Evil: Extinction" soundtrack, which will be issued on September 18 via Lakeshore Records. Watch the clip below.
In a recent interview with Skiddle, Kruspe stated about his decision to handle the lead vocals himself in Emigrate
, "It was difficult really difficult! I so regretted those times at Rammstein productions that I'd been demanding with Till [Lindemann, RammsteiN frontman]. As a singer, you're just incredibly vulnerable, always trying to catch the moment and the mood. What I came to realize, though, is that the whole thing is really about attitude. It's not to do with whether you have a great voice or not, it's about do you want to say something or just keep your mouth shut?!
On his move from Berlin to New York, Kruspe said, "I left my comfortable situation, and just started again from zero in New York. When I arrived there, I didn't know anyone, the only people I could hang out with at this time were the friends of my wife, I was pretty much by myself. Looking back, however, it was an important step for me. If I hadn't made the move to New York, there would be no Emigrate, full stop; the city is such a big part of the project."
"You wonder how so many different cultures can live together in peace, and the answer is simple; because there's only one religion there money. I guess it's a sad fact in one respect, but on the other hand, it gives the city an incredible sense of purpose. You find yourself facing challenges every single day."
