BILLY – beginning instead of end
Soul and sensuality: Bill Kaulitz, 27, Now almost alone”

“California High” is the title of the third single and video of Billy‘s debut EP. Under the direction of Shiro Gutzie, @shirogutzie (Instagram), the viewer follows Bill Kaulitz @billisnotok (Instagram) aka Billy and Hollywood actress Chanel Celaya, @chanelcelaya21 (Instagram) on their cruise through the streets and gorges of Los Angeles in Nightly summer torn. The short film to the pulsating, moody solo track is supported by disturbing longing for “her” instead of “love”. Hope accompanies the end of the clip when the sun rises above the City of Angels – and everything turns back to the beginning.

Young hero – and legend.
No German before him looks back at such a career at the age of 27.
Bill Kaulitz, a pop nomad, roaming between Berlin and Los Angeles.
A conversation about his life and the search for meaning

Patience is the first word that comes to mind when I see Bill Kaulitz sitting in the studio. It is just being painted. Lace knees stuck out of the jeans with holes out. He is rolled up, you see naked fetters. At his feet is a brown and white piebald bulldog: “This is Pumba. He did not want to get up today.” Bill‘s voice is warm and open.

“Have you had him long?” I ask and sit down in front of the hair equipment. I know that Pumba is in the hit list of the sweetest celebrity pets. On Instagram there is a whole gallery with pictures of the two cuddling. And he also got his own video for his first birthday.

Three years. I got it at eight weeks. He is so sweet & kind, so full of love. Sometimes he sits there and looks deeply into my eyes, which is like a ‘Hug’. ”

Bill is talking about tattoos with the make-up artist. That they fade after a few years, especially the black. She also has one thing on hand. A chain with cross dangling above it. He shows her his hands and his forearm: Freedom stands there. With flourishes. A reference to his mother. When she was pregnant with the twins, the wall was still standing. Bill closes his eyes, leans back. The make-up artist dabs his face with a paste from Bobbi Brown. “Do you need anything more?” She asks.
Bill looks up, “No, everything else fits.” He gets up, bends closer to the mirror, is now tugging at his hair. Every single strand is wise.

Tokio Hotel: Dream Machine

Everything starts with a thought and suddenly you are dancing through your own wonderland full of fruits and sweets! Friendship, respect, an almost unshakable self-awareness in one’s self, the vision of being, the curiosity of life, an insatiable thirst for development, to create something together, to achieve and to experience …

If you look at Tokio Hotel, it is all these qualities that form the basis and the impetus of an incomparable career. The career of a German band, which simply does not fit into any drawer. And so also the one or the other tried hard, Bill and Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schäfer always remained the architects of their world. After more than a decade in the international music business, 70 platinum, 160 gold awards, more than 110 international and national prizes, and over 7 million sold phonograms, Tokio Hotel will release their new art project and fifth studio album “Dream Machine” on March 3, The proof that they are always able to reinvent themselves.

“Dream Machine” opens the door to the new sound world of Tokio Hotel. A world with high mountains, deep valleys, wild rivers, dense forests and endless expanses. A world that pulsates, glows in neon colors and club lights – light, playful, spherical and enthralling. Built on a sound foundation, a symbiosis of alternative indie pop, analogous Retro-synths, modern beats and strong Baselines, without rules. “This is the album that we always wanted to make – just us four, without anyone chatting us. We started with the last record. Since we have tried and fueled self-consciousness. At “Dream Machine” we knew right from the beginning that we were doing it alone. We did not need any producer in between or any songwriters. We did not feel like we needed this back-up. We felt able to have full control, creativity, the songs and what we wanted to make and say – in sound, in production, and also with our lyrics. That is why it is not only our dream album, because no one is talking to us anymore, but also because, as a band, we were finally able to realize ourselves honestly musically, “explains Bill.
