Adel Tawil is one of the most successful German pop stars. TAG24 talked to him about his current music and is giving away free tickets for Saturday’s concert.

Dresden – Adel Tawil (43) is one of the most successful German pop stars. First, with Annette Humpe in the music project “Ich + Ich”, from 2013 as a solo artist. The Berliner of Tunisian-Egyptian roots is currently working on his fourth album and finally managed to end his involuntary absence from the stage thanks to the ongoing, twice postponed “Alles Leben” tour. Adel Tawil will play in Junge Garde on Saturday Dresden. For this purpose, he is giving away free tickets to TAG24.

DAY 24: Mr. Tawil, like many of your colleagues, are currently on the road with concerts that were actually scheduled for 2020. What is it like to come back on stage?

Adel Tawil: “I feel absolutely great! Two years is a really hard dry period. For me, awareness: playing live is essential. Without this experience, I completely lack the motivation to create new music. Like many colleagues, we were also working on streaming and the funny thought occurred to me: is it always like this?

DAY 24: The show was created with the then new material from the album “Alles Leben” in mind, which, although it can be presented live for the first time, is already three years old. New songs have been created for a long time. Is the material from 2019 really still fresh?

Tawil: “Yes, absolutely. Of course we are back to everything, but we always do it before each tour. We review all the issues and adjust the set list. This time we tried to elegantly integrate the new numbers. re happy Yes: we’re catching up on the Everything Lives tour, but we’re giving you a sneak peek of what’s to come.

DAY 24: The songs “Everything is alive” and especially the hit single “Tu m’appelles” with singer Peachy were carefree summer. Now “Labyrinth” has been released, the trailer for a new album that will be released in the fall. There is a clear difference: catchy, but quite gloomy. What are you processing in the Labyrinth? They were fairly honest that they were close to being depressed during the blockade and announced a “very personal” album.

Tawil: “Each record should be personal. I always have a notebook with me and I want to process everything – my feelings, fears, worries, but also happy moments. When “The Labyrinth” was written, it was impossible to take part in life. I was sitting at home and I was very close to despair. Then we wrote this song together on the phone. But the album will sound not only like a blockage, but also like hope. Earlier, I released “Menschenkinder”, a number that tells about the help that I saw everywhere at the time. “

DAY 24: “Labyrinth” is a duo with the Hamburg rapper Bozza. How did you come up with it?

Tawil: “We met in the studio. If you mainly work with the same people, of course you always want: who do you want to do something with? And with Bozza it happened very quickly! Rappers work differently, come and do it. Song and go. My songs usually last for several weeks. “

DAY 24: Does the duo indicate that your sound will change in the future? Are you going towards rap?

Tawil: “No, ‘Labyrinth’ remains something out of place. Even though I come from a rap background, I was never a good rapper and I had to find my voice first. With each album you ask yourself: where are your strengths? Where you feel most comfortable “I am most concerned with classic songs, the focus remains. And yet some people will be amazed at the experiments I have recently carried out. “

DAY 24: Has the audience really changed? How did you experience it at the previous shows of the tour?

Tawil: “You can feel a clear difference in moods. People die of hunger, so do we, we musicians. It’s a great meeting after a long time. Certainly also in Dresden: whether at the Film Evenings or as now in Junge Garde, the atmosphere has always been great. “
