With high quality remastered audio, from her album Angstlos (Fearless).
Catharina "Nina" Hagen (born March 11, 1955) is a German singer, songwriter, and actress. She is known for her theatrical vocals and is often referred to as the "Godmother of Punk" due to her prominence during the punk and new wave movements in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Fearless is the second studio album by German singer Nina Hagen. It was released in November 1983 by CBS Records. The German version of the album entitled Angstlos was also released. Produced by Giorgio Moroder and Keith Forsey, the album was a major musical departure from her previous mostly new wave material. Unlike her experimental debut NunSexMonkRock (1982), Fearless is a dance-pop album with influence of disco. It also incorporates other genres such as hip hop.
Upon its release, Fearless received generally mixed reviews from music critics. While some praised her new musical direction, others were critical towards her newly adopted disco sound. Commercially, the album noted a moderate success. It was Hagen's second album to chart in the United States, where it peaked at number 151 on the Billboard 200. In Germany, it reached number twenty-four and also charted in other countries, such as Austria, Netherlands, and New Zealand.
Two singles from the album were released. The lead single "New York New York" was successful in American dance charts, peaking at number nine on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs. "Zarah", a cover of Zarah Leander's song "Ich weiss, es wird einmal ein Wunder geschehen", was released as the album's second single. It was also successful in the United States where it peaked at number forty-five on the Dance Club Songs chart.
