Tokio Hotel’s Bill Kaulitz Launches Solo Project BILLY‏

Bill Kaulitz embarks on a new solo project under the artist moniker BILLY. As the singer of the band TOKIO HOTEL, the international superstar has sold over 7 million records worldwide, performed for 500,000 people in front of the Eiffel Tower, won hundreds of awards and gone platinum in 68 countries. In the midst of this enormous success, he is venturing on his own for the first time to release a 5-song EP I’M NOT OK on May 20, to chronicle his life experiences and the rollercoaster ride of finding and losing love. Available on all digital platforms worldwide and physical product in selected territories via Los Angeles-based De-Code LTD, distributed by Chapter One/Universal Music in Europe, Caroline in the US and Kontor New Media in selected territories.

“Love Don’t Break Me,” the EP’s first official song release will be out on April 29, is a minimalistic/electronic ballad–which reflects a new sound and impressive growth in BILLY’s musical palette.

The song is just one part of the multi-media hybrid art project which also includes a stunning Black and White short-film directed by Shiro Gutzie and Davis Factor and an accompanying fine art photo book with selected images from the film and other original pictures by the directors. A series of large format art prints complete the ambitious art project. “I didn’t want to do a traditional music release for my first solo project” BILLY says “I wanted the freedom to explore the other areas in my life that I am passionate about like Art and Fashion and felt that a pure music project wouldn’t fulfill my vision as a solo artist”.

For the new project BILLY wrote the songs in collaboration with music producers Pionear, Shiro Gutzie and his own twin-brother Tom Kaulitz. “I wanted to go in the studio and experiment with new sounds and not be creatively held backBILLY adds “I created an environment for myself where I had no pressure and was able to just try new things without worrying about sales, promotion or marketing plans and just focus on creating”.

Future extensions to the project include other art-driven initiatives as well as fashion related activities, a field BILLY is familiar with, he has appeared on numerous lifestyle covers including Interview Magazine, L’Uomo Vogue, L’ Officiel Hommes and many others. “Fashion is an extension of my music and I’m looking forward to immersing myself in that world. I believe they go hand in hand and can’t wait to make that a reality” said BILLY.

The fine art photo book which includes a limited edition 7” white vinyl of “Love Don’t Break Me” went on pre-sale unannounced on March 30, with the first 300 copies individually signed by BILLY. The $50 book available exclusively through the official BILLY website sold over 1,000 copies in its first 12 hours.

Tokio Hotel speak out against racism in Germany,
Bill’s solo project officially announced

Although TH have been mostly quiet working on album #5, they recently broke their silence to tweet about the German right-wing/nationalist party Alternative für Deutschland (Alternative for Germany). For those not familiar, here’s a quick look at AfD’s policies. If my understanding of German politics is correct, Germany just had state elections and AdF has been gaining seats by leaning on anti-immigrant hate speech. Their party leader actually suggested shooting immigrants at the border. TH tend to stay in their corner when it comes to politics but I’m glad they spoke out about this.

Meanwhile, God of pop Bill Kaulitz has launched billyofficial.net where you can pr=eorder the “first multimedia release” of his solo project: a photobook and a vinyl single for his “art piece” Love Don’t Break Me, which will include a short film. You can also get a glimpse of his solo alter ego, Billy, and enjoy such quotes as “If death is imminent, it is better to be killed by a lover.”

The song/video is still not out however, so if you want to get the full high-brow pop experience, you’ll have to wait a bit. Some more. The book comes out on April 29th so maybe we’ll actually hear the song by then.
