RYL: Let’s start with a good news …”DNA” just reached gold in Italy! Amazing! Can you tell us what inspired this song?
ANNA F. : People, who don´t want to commit themselves to anything. neither to a common idea about love and life, nor to an emotional base.
That´s why the lyrics in the verses are totally weird, just a stream of consciousness
I wrote those lyrics with jimmy harry from L.A. in a drunken late night Skype session.
RYL: Is there a common meaning, a link,between the songs of the new album “King in the Mirror” ?
ANNA F. : It´s all about my personal experience and reflections within the past 3 years, e.g. about self-image versus how other people perceive yourself and the gap between those two things.
RYL: We love “Lost in Perfection”, what is behind its lyrics?
ANNA F. :it´s about human beings who become more and more similar.
I mean what are people striving for? they adjust, they even have surgeries….in the end you won’t find yourself within all those similar-looking people. individualism is at a loss.
RYL: Are you working on new songs?
ANNA F. : yes, i just started.
RYL : Which is the last song you wrote?
ANNA F.: on my album it´s DNA
RYL: how do you, usually, write the lyrics of your songs?
ANNA F.: I love to write on trains, planes or on anything that´s moving:)
i just like to write poems that from spontaneity…they might strike me in a cafe or in the tour bus…you never know…
RYL: Which is the best verse you ever wrote?
ANNA F. I´m the king in the mirror, queen of the shy, the hero was hidden for so long. I´m the king in the mirror, not in real life, and I´ve looked in the mirror for too long.
RYL: Which is your favorite RnR song?
ANNA F.: Whole lotta love
RYL: Are you currently preparing your next tour? Where you will perform?
ANNA F.: we are planning our next tour for the beginning of next year in Germany, Austria, Italy (so far)
RYL: Do you remember the day you wrote “Tongue Tied”?
ANNA F: Yes, it was a warm november day in umbria/italy, where my producer Philipp Steinke and i started to record my album.
