DEINE LAKAIEN - Releases Lyric Video For The Cover Of Patti Smith/Bruce Spingsteen Classic

After unveiling the first single from the upcoming double album, tellingly entitled Dual, which is slated for release on 16th April 2021 via Prophecy Productions, the German avant-garde darkwave icons Deine Lakaien, have now released a lyric video for their stunning rendering of the Patti Smith/Bruce Spingsteen classic "Because The Night".

Alexander Veljanov comments: "I have known this track since my youth", relates the vocalist. "Although I have never been the biggest fan of neither Patti Smith nor Bruce Springsteen, the life and work of these outstanding personalities has always impressed me. Of course, "Because The Night" is a classic, which probably nobody expected us to cover. I did not want to deconstruct the song or darken it, but it has an inherent melancholy and energetic romanticism that demonstrates, the power of love shines above everything else."

Ernst Horn adds: "We have been mulling the idea for a cover albnum for quite a while. It turned out to be an interesting way to work as those tunes were not necessarily the favourites of my youth. Yet their build-up and the harmonies remain fascinating, which turned working with those songs into a beautiful and valuable experience. I have done my best to respect the originals, which meant that turning them on their heads or mocking those classics was never an option. I have preserved the harmonies, but as Alexander has his own style of singing, I used different colours and rhythm patterns to suit him and thus these cover versions adapted something of our identity too."
