Vanessa Mai (30) has long established herself as a solo singer. However, she first became known as the frontwoman of the band Wolkenfrei. In 2013 the group released their debut single "Jeans, T-Shirt and Freedom", followed in 2014 by their debut album "Endlosliebe". Just one year later, Stefan Kinski and Marc Fischer announced their departure and Mai continued the project on her own. In 2016 she said goodbye to her beginnings and only appeared under her stage name from then on. Just in time for the tenth anniversary of the Wolkenfrei debut, Mai returns to her roots and releases a first new single from the upcoming new Wolkenfrei album.
The song "The world belongs to us" is said to convey "an infectious light-heartedness". Among other things, Mai sings: "Open the window, wind in your hair, the sat nav up where I've never been. [...] Next stop: horizon. So crazy about everything that's to come. Nothing and no one what us Baby, we own the world." For the accompanying video, which premieres this Friday at 5 p.m. and a clip of which was previously published on Instagram, the singer can be seen on a sunny road trip and on the beach.
The album "Hotel Tropicana" will be released on March 31st and, like the herald single, should radiate "ease and joie de vivre". According to the announcement, the songs are about "love, freedom and longing, about big dreams and small escapes from everyday life". Deep inside, "Clouds Free always had a place in my heart, I know where I come from," says Vanessa Mai in a statement. "I was never tired of hits. I just had to break new ground with Vanessa Mai to be able to do what made me so happy back then with all my heart."
