Rene Pawlowitz has announced the release of a new album for the German label with which he is closely affiliated due for release on the 29th of November at the end of this week. This will be his fifth full length album, an LP which focusses on his birthplace and home, Oderbruch. The region, formerly belonging to East Germany, is channeled thematically across the release which Rene describing the album as follows:
“What binds you to places? To remembering them. Places you can feel, when you feel at home. Places that affirm your very existence. This place for me is the Oderbruch. This album is dedicated to it.”
