The untitled[4] seventh studio album by German Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein, also referred to eponymously as Rammstein,[5] was released through Universal Music on 17 May 2019.[6] Their first studio album in ten years, it is their first not to be produced by Jacob Hellner; it was instead produced by Emigrate band member Olsen Involtini (who also serves as Rammstein's live sound engineer). The album was preceded by two singles, "Deutschland" and "Radio", the former becoming their second number-one song in Germany. "Ausländer" was released as a single on 31 May.

Promotion and release[edit]

In an interview with Kerrang! in January 2019, Richard Z. Kruspe noted that there would be five music videos created for the album. Teaser clips for the first music video were released during late March. These clips featured visuals from the video along with the Roman numerals for the date 28 March 2019.[7] On that day, the song "Deutschland" was released as the album's lead single on digital platforms, and its 10-minute-long music video was uploaded onto YouTube.[8] The single also came with a remix by Kruspe.[9] The band formally revealed the release date of the album, 17 May 2019, as well. They did not reveal the cover art but noted the album had no title.[10] After being up for just four days, the music video garnered 19 million views.[11] "Deutschland" was released physically as both a 7-inch vinyl and CD single on 12 April, with the remix acting as the B-side.[12] The track list was revealed between 16 April and 19 April on the band's YouTube channel with snippets of riffs from each song. The cover of the album was also revealed there on 18 April.[13] Less than a week later, the band began teasing a music video for the song "Radio", which was released on 26 April.[14] On 26 May, the band teased a music video for the album's third single, "Ausländer". The video was released on 28 May[15] and the single was released on 31 May.[16]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted atop the German album charts on issue date 24 May 2019. In the first week in Germany, it moved 260,000 album-equivalent units, making it the best-performing album in the first week from a band in the 21st century.[27] The album spent the next two weeks at No. 2 before climbing back up to No. 1 on 14 June.[28] The album also peaked at No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart, selling 12,130 copies and spent three consecutive weeks atop the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart.[29][30] In the United States, the album peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard 200, earning 28,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. The album is the band's first to reach the top 10 in the United States.[31] On 11 July 2019, the album was certified 2× Platinum by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie for sales of over 400,000 album-equivalent units in Germany.
