Video: Till Lindemann

Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

The State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg has become the backdrop for the German singer and Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann's latest release. The video accompanies a version of the post-war Russian song entitled Любимый город (Beloved Town), a piece that became particularly associated with the city after the Siege of Leningrad, and was released on the eve of Victory Day.

Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky published a press release explaining that the collaboration was a part of a new project with the aim of strengthening cultural ties between Russia and Germany. The video is actually set in several rooms designed by the German architect Leo von Klenze (1784-1864), rooms which house some of the museum's most treasured old master paintings.
