She's currently searching someone who would design her artwork and a logo for the album on facebook.

Yeeeeeeeeeees! - I can't wait to get a new album by the German Princess of Pop!

Personally, I like the meaning of "Gemini" and that it fits to her other astrological titles such as "Satellite", "Stardust", "Galaxies", "Crystal Sky", "To The Moon" and "Moonlight" but I personally don't like the sound of the English pronunciation of "Gemini"; I will just pretend that it's going to be pronunced the German way...
I basically do the same with "Femme Fatale" by Britney (I always say it in a French way).

Her last album was great!

What's wrong with the English pronunciation of Gemini? :lol:

Also Femme Fatale is French, how is there another way of pronouncing that?

I simply don't like the sound of it.
[ ˈdʒem.ɪ.naɪ ] sounds a bit aggressive to my ears. I don't like the rhythm pattern of that word and the first sound "dʒ" which makes it so strong to my ears. Also the diphthong at the end needs some extra effort while speaking.
It's simply not a beautiful word.

"Femme Fatale" is a French word but Britney Spears as well as will.i.am (check the ending of "Big Fat Bass" on FF; you can hear will.i.am saying "Fämme" instead of "FAmme" on 4:39: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK2S76stFto) and I'm quite sure that tons of Americans and many fans pronunced it differently. Not like the soft and open-sounded vowel like in a word such as "some" but they chose to pronounce "Femme" with an "e" as the first vowel and not the French "a".
Same applies to the second word "Fatale".

French:-ˈtal(z), VS. "American English -ˈtäl(z)\

My ears are ready! :cry:

I don't think she'll be able to top the masterpiece that is Crystal Sky, but hopefully she'll get close.
I see her going for more of an urban sound rather than electro pop this era.

I LOVE Lena but her and her team should not be allowed near another album until they have learnt lessons from Crystal Sky. It is her most commercial album to date but they essentially left it to die after Traffic Lights. They weren't quick enough with a second single. Wild & Free was a great single but they could have (and should have) released Beat To My Melody as the second single (Although it should realistically have been the first) in late July then have Wild & Free as the "3rd" with a re-release. Then have a 4th single in January 2016 (I'd personally have gone with 4 Sleeps or Home) then a final single in late April/early May (That Girl or Keep On Living). What was the whole idea of having videos for Home and Catapult?!?! I know they were eyeing Catapult as a U.K. Single (stupid idea) but they need to have the courage in their convictions.

Despite the fact it was easily one of the best (if not the best) albums of 2015, they handled every aspect so badly it is untrue.

Lena will be part of the fourth season of 'Sing meinen Song', a very popular show in Germany, which will start in late may.

Will be interesting to see if she'll have the new stuff ready by then...

The thing basically revived Yvonne Caterfeld and re introduced Sarah Connor as a credible artist

^ i know, so that could do wonders for Lena as well. Unfortunately, she's not the best live singer, so i'm not sure how it will work for her. It also depends on the tracks she'll cover from the other artists...

Here's the official UKMIX Thread for the single:

Audio for "Lost In You"

It says '"Lena - Lost In You" is Lena Meyer's new track from her upcoming album "Gemini" that will be released in September.'

No idea where they have this from but September as a release date seems so far away :(

Do we have any idea what is happening with the album? Since If i Wasn’t Your Daughter, things have gone graveyard style quiet.

I just hope that we will get it soon. "Lost In You" & "If I Wasn't Your Daughter" are already amazing.

Hopefully, she's not trying to record German songs now after their latest track with that lower class rappers & "Sing meinen Song".

She's touring in early 2018 so i'm sure we will get this until then. But maybe they were a bit surprised that all songs ("Lost In You", "If I Wasn't Your Daughte" and that Genetikk song) were flops. She's not used to this at all when it comes to lead singles, BTMM was her first real flop after all...

Anyways, looking at the busy schedule for the upcoming months, she should wait until the second half of january to release this. Everything else will be charts suicide.

But they weren't supporting any of those tracks massively.

"If I Wasn't Your Daughter" was #1 on iTunes and it was kind of talked about. They should have pushed it with a good music video, another performance, a proper single release, etc.

"Lost In You" didn't even have a music video, no single performance, etc.

True... it's sad how they wasted the potential of "Daughter" :(

Maybe a 'real' lead single is yet to come.

And Lena still does a lot of TV stuff by the way, except for promoting her own thing as it appears.

Oh has the tour been pushed back? I had seen December tour dates as I was tempted to see her when I come back to Germany in December
