Interview in German newspaper 'Die Welt'

'Dieser mysteriöse Mann ist meine Mission'

A little summary:

She talks about the covers of her latest albums - she's bored by those always-the-same beautiful faces, finds senseless glamour fotos almost an insult, she wants to tell stories with her covers. She says, she takes her time for each project, this time three years, Decca became nervous already. She says that she's very much interested in the times between the eras and in the musicians that inspired the famous ones. She talks about how Donna Leon joined her (at first, she was not interested, but as soon as she heard Steffani's music and knew more about his life, she was captured). She tells us, where she found the scores (Munich, Hannover, Vienna, London). She hopes for a Steffani renaissance and at last requests Decca to record 'Niobe'.
