Germany’s hottest pop star of 2009, the bearded 38-year-old Berliner (né Pierre Baigorry) is a member of the dancehall/reggae band Seeed. Last year he released his first solo album, Stadtaffe (“City Ape”), from which this hit single “Alles neu” is taken (and the simian theme is carried amply into the video, as you can see). The album’s been a Euro-blockbuster, and the song’s striking visuals are matched by provocative lyrics such as, “My head explodes, everything has to change,” and “I burn my studio, sniff the ashes like cocaine, I strike dead my goldfish, bury it in the yard.” Good times…

BTW, another popular song from the same album, “Haus am see (House on the Lake)” was a little more sedate, to say the least — just as well, ’cause after all this strenuous monkeying around, we need a breather.
