Germany: Lena Meyer-Landrut Prepares Third AlbumWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
One of the countries to surprise the rest of Europe in the past couple of years when it comes to the Eurovision Song Contest has surely been Germany noting that they managed to find a local star with international appeal, so much so that she has won coveted awards at the MTV European Music Awards following her participation in the well known event which has been regaining the credibility which it seems to have lost for a particular period in time. The artist who goes by the name of Lena Meyer-Landrut managed to give Germany, their much awaited second victory with the song Satellite with Stefan Raab along with the broadcaster deciding it would be a good idea to resend her in the following year with a totally different track and the idea did not backfire with Taken By A Stranger finishing in tenth place. Lena is currently putting the finishing touches on her third album.
Her brand new album is going to be completely different from her sophomore release which was a compilation of tracks as performed in the national selection leading up to the Eurovision Song Contest held in Dusseldorf, Germany. The material which will be grouped under the name Stardust has mostly been written by the singer herself and will therefore be her most personal album yet. It is also to be noted that the genre of the songs are very much laid back with a swing and jazz sort of tune, which is somewhat slightly similar to the tracks released within the first album which had the name My Cassette Player. Promotion is going to be extremely important for this album because the Eurovision Song Contest was used as a major springboard for her first two releases but this time round, it is expected that a tour will suffice and make up for the lost exposure. Several members of the media have had the opportunity to listen to eight (8) of the songs on the album and reviews have been quite positive indeed.
