UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER will release his new album, “My Way”, on April 22nd via Atomic Fire Records.

For the first time, UDO sings in his native language and shines on the WOLFSHEIM cover “Kein Zurück”, which was released a few days ago as a digital single and as a limited 7″ vinyl (700 copies, incl. “We Will Rock You”) and along with a music video.

“My Way”

“When I heard the song on the radio for the first time, I got excited straight away,” remembers Udo Dirkschneider and explains: “I immediately felt understood by the words. It almost seemed to me as if the text was telling about my career, about my highs and lows, about all the good and bad experiences that you have. For those who choose the life as a musician, there is simply “no way back”. It’s the first time I’ve been singing in my native language on a song – it was a real struggle for me at first, but at the same time it was a great experience.”

“My Way” contains 17 cover versions of the very songs that have influenced the musician and singer the most. All kinds of classics from music history are among them – including those that you might not expect from UDO. Not only does a very personal story lie behind each of the tracks, but also a sometimes surprising arrangement that, despite the very individual implementation, lives and breathes UDO’s manuscript throughout. “Now when I hear the songs, I remember the time when, as a very young UDO, I’d go out to light up the town and lived all the stories that can only be experienced late at night in the clubs.”
