News from the leader of Tokio Hotel: Singer Bill Kaulitz (26) apparently releases his first solo single “Love Don’t Break Me” on May 20th under the new stage name of “Billy”. His launch will be accompanied with a video, which will come as a short film. A book on this can be ordered now.
In addition to a newly designed website, there is also a new official Twitter account @billyisnotok. The sound of ‘Billy’ should be indie alternative, and the first song “Love Don’t Break Me ” will be out in seven weeks. According to the official website, the track is “a story about despair, heartbreak and hope”.
The management of his label De-Code LTD in Los Angeles confirmed today to Klatsch-Tratsch.de: “Yes, new music will be released on May 20th, under his solo artist name Billy. A short film, a photo book and art prints will be published in advance.”
Thus, a special opulent photo book is already available for the fans, which you can pre-order on Billy‘s official website. It contains a lot of photos from “LDBM” video shoot- and that on 128 stylish black-and-white pages. The edition is limited. The good piece does not cost so little – at least 50 dollars. The first 300 copies, which were signed by Bill Kaulitz, are already sold out.
New Facebook and Instagram pages for Bill’s solo project have also been created and are already quite successful: the Instagram account, with nothing yet on it from Billy, almost already has 8,000 followers. The last Tokio hotel album was released in 2013 and has remained below expectations. In September 2015 was announced that the band started a contract with Studio 71, the multi-network channel of ProSiebenSat.1.
Moreoever Tokio Hotel are planning on releasing a new album this year. Billy’s project will officially be announced next week.
