“Unhum. Yeah, right!” Song gets another meaning under the hands of Germans industrial masters.
Emigrate, Rammstein’s guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe’s side project, have released the third single from their forthcoming album, The Persistence of Memory. The track, featuring a guest appearance from Rammstein singer Till Lindemann, is a new take on the classic ‘Always on My Mind’.
The song, previously recorded by Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson and Pet Shop Boys is an old fashion romantic apology for taking someone for granted and asking one another chance. Under the Germans industrial masters, the song takes a cynical spin, as quirk female ‘Unhum yeah, right!’ just after the first “you were always on my mind”, as if the apologized partner did not really believe the sincerity of the singer. A last surprise, by the end of the song (listen below), seems to confirm this suspicion.
The Persistence of Memory is set to be released November the 5th.
