Between Carly Rae Jepsen and Slipknot, this new music Friday is one for the history books, and it just keeps getting better. German rock giants Rammstein have just dropped their first new record in almost a decade, Untitled.

The band gave fans their first of Untitled, last month with leading single ‘Deutschland.’ The track has already racked up a monolithic 50 million views on YouTube. ‘Deutschland’ was initially met with controversy, attracting criticism for allegedly trivialising the Holocaust.

“With this video, the band has crossed a line,” shared Charlotte Knobloch, a Holocaust survivor and former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany. “The instrumentalization and trivialization of the Holocaust, as shown in the images, is irresponsible.”

Whilst Felix Klein, the government’s commissioner for anti-semitism, labelled the video “a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom. Watch the video below.

“I understand the fans who are maybe annoyed by the long wait. But we need the time to be really good,” drummer Christoph Schneider shared in a statement. “It’s not easy: I wasn’t always sure that this record would actually get made. We’ve now spent three years in the rehearsal room and studio. The great thing is: At no point in the band’s history have we ever got on so well together as now, not yelled at each other at work and been able to overcome musical crises.”
