DEINE LAKAIEN – “SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN”
Deine Lakaien are an iconic German dark music act. The legendary electronic duo has managed the rare feat of being accepted as serious artists as well as proving to be immensely popular over more than three and a half decades. Deine Lakaien have released a lyric video for their amazing take on the Pink Floyd classic “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” as the second single taken from their forthcoming new album Dual +. Dual + is scheduled for release on November 26, 2021.
“When I was 18 years old, I got very much hooked on psychedelic music”, recalls Ernst Horn. “The rage of the day was beat, which was quite tame and still very much influenced by rock and roll. Along came young acts such as Pink Floyd, Cream, and of course Jimi Hendrix that opened the gates wide. They all had been influenced by the experiments of The Beatles producer George Martin. ‘Set the Controls to the Heart of the Sun’ is a very psychedelic song and forever a part of my world. It was a great experience for me to work with these sounds that have always been with me and to bring them to the environment of my studio. As I see, this song is a subtle ode to the sun gifting life and most of all love to this planet. We should recognise and turn towards it.” ~Deine Lakaien
