“Are you the human being” is about one of the greatest risks in life: the promise and trust to always be there for one another. Ben’s involvement with it is no accident. Three years after his first publication, the exceptional musician arrived in the sold-out Mercedes-Benz Arena in his hometown of Berlin at the end of 2019. And then – shut up the country. From the thunderous applause of the people, Ben will be banished to his living room in spring 2020. In the sudden silence at home, the head carousel begins to spin, and topics such as failed relationships or excessive demands on himself keep him awake. Until he begins to process them into songs.
This year we have all seen how important it is to know someone very closely in times like this. Someone who “counts on me” and “moves my little world”, as Ben himself puts it. Just singing along to this poignantly honest song gives comfort and makes you feel like you’re not alone with the same uncertainty and hope. After “Guten Morgen Welt”, “Are you the person?” Spans a wonderful range for the upcoming album “Now even more!”: Between cheering and melancholy warmth. With the second pre-single for his new album, Ben could hardly have shown a better instinct.
Quiet moments have also been found on each of his previous gold and platinum recordings. There Ben got a lot of space to sing with rough and at the same time soft sounds and aroused deep emotions in the listener. And anyone who knows his albums or has already been to one of his live concerts knows that Ben’s distinctive voice not only inspires with loud tones, but especially with quiet ones.
“Now even more!” Will be released on April 16, 2021 and not only as a standard CD, but also in the limited sugar bowl edition and in the exclusive Ich find Schlager Toll! Rain Jackets Merchbundle will be available. All products can already be pre-ordered.
As a thank you to his fans for their loyal support over the past few months, Ben Zucker will be giving an exclusive digital mini-concert on Monday, March 29th at 7:30 p.m., in which he will not only “Are you the person” but also “ Guten Morgen Welt ”will be performing live for the first time.
The concert will be streamed live on the Ben Zucker & Semmel Concerts Facebook channels.
