Rammstein have announced their new album, Zeit, will be released on April 29, and have unveiled the title-track as the first glimpse of their eighth opus.

Directed by actor and musician Robert Gwisdek, the video is available on the band's YouTube channel now. Meanwhile, Canadian musician and photographer Bryan Adams – as in, (Everything I Do) I Do It for You – shot the band for the artwork.

Watch the video for Zeit below:

Having been forced to postpone their European and U.S. stadium runs because of COVID, the band revealed on Instagram in 2020 that they had been getting busy in France's La Fabrique Studios, where they recorded their 2019 'Untitled' album. “Sadly no tour this year," wrote drummer Christof 'Doom' Schneider, "but it’s great to be back in the studio!”

In November last year, Richard Kruspe confirmed that the band's new record "is expected to be released… before the tour", which kicks off in May.

Before that, Christoph shared that he played French astronaut Thomas Pesquet a brand-new song in space.

"Space is calling!" he posted on Instagram. "I had the honor to speak with ISS astronaut @thom_astro on behalf of @rammsteinofficial. He is the current commander of the @iss and living in space since half a year. It felt like a child's dream coming true for me – talking to a person living in the sky, sharing a glimpse of his view, realizing again how small we all are compared to the depth of the universe…

"He was the first to listen to one of our new songs from the upcoming album. It premiered in the sky, which is an honor for us. Thank you @nasa @europeanspaceagency and Thomas for this unique experience."

Check out the Zeit artwork below:
