Bill Kaulitz and his solo project BILLY

While perceived 50 fans pressed their noses flat against the window, I was crowded with photographers and pressmen in a small room, waiting as Billy positioned himself for a few photographs. Everyone wanted to have a picture with him. With who? Of course, with Bill Kaulitz, who now calls himself “BILLY“.
To kick off as a solo artist, he has acquired a new image and a new name. Tokio Hotel‘s frontman, but he wants more: to reach a whole new audience. He did not want a conventional release for his first solo project – he staged a “multi-media hybrid” Art project which he called after his first song “Love Do not Break Me”. This art project includes not only the music, black and white short films, a 128-page photo book and large format framed prints, which were presented last night to invited guests and press people in the Berlin SevenStarGallery.


Tokio Hotel’s Billy Kaulitz Talks His New EP & Why Aliens Exist

When you were in middle school, you probably remember adding the lyrics to Tokio Hotel’s “Monsoon” to your AIM profile. What you probably didn’t know is that Tokio Hotel had been making music since 2001, and their American hits like “Monsoon” were originally written in German.

Today, Tokio Hotel is alive and well, with a lead singer whose hair is changing faster than the band’s busy schedule. While in between albums, Billy Kaulitz has decided to give his fans, or “aliens,” a treat with a solo project that will be released on May 20th. The first single, “Love Don’t Break Me,” was released this past week, and it’s safe to say that the rest of the EP is going to be just as emotional and sexy. We talked to Billy about his new solo project, being a hopeless romantic, and secret Coachella parties.

You’ve said that your solo project, BILLY, is about experimenting with your own sound. Why was this a perfect time to do a solo album for you?

I am not sure if this is the “perfect” time. I’ve been working on this for quite a while and I never had a real plan for actually putting it out. I was touring the entire year last year and we are kind of in between albums with the band, so I had time to really concentrate on this, I guess. Things just came together and it felt right to do it. I feel ready for it. The energy is right.
