PRESS RELEASE: Kobus Muller – Lichterloh (November 2018)

Are you ready for the new Kobus Muller hit?

The INTERNATIONALLY released South African born singer – Kobus Muller, is back with yet another brand-new hot single called – The Lichterloh. Kobus Muller is the former winner of the popular South African TV singing competition – ‘Supersterre’, and signed to the record label – Nextereo Records.

Lichterloh portrays the unique and beautifully toned side of Kobus Muller’s voice. His versatility, good looks and down to earth attitude has earned him various awards and international audience popularity. With numerous Top 10 and Nr 1 positions on TV and radio stations worldwide, Kobus Muller is once again set to capture the hearts of his fans. Kobus also received awards from Sony Music for album sales.

‘Petrol En Vuur’, the original Afrikaans version of Lichterloh was due for release earlier this year, but Kobus had his heart set on recording this song in German and in the genre of Pop Schlager. When asked why Schlager, Kobus Muller’s response were: “I have always enjoyed Schlager. Even when I am back in South Africa, I would mostly play Schlager internet radio stations. There is just something magical in Schlager songs which can’t be explained. Schlager music has the power to bring crowds together. Ich finde Schlager toll!”. His label and management agreed and Nextereo Publishing, the publishing division of Nextereo Records, approached one of their skilled songwriters. Max Zumstein very cleverly wrote the German text. “I’m happy, that Nextereo Publishing offered me the possibility to meet the artist – Kobus Muller before I wrote the German lyrics of ,Petrol En Vuur‘. It helped me to understand the personality of the song and the artist. Lichterloh is Kobus Muller’s declaration of love for German Schlager and reflects his connection to the beauty of his home country South Africa.

“ Stephan Jung, from the InoventiQ Group in Germany said “I am very excited about this song. It has all the right elements to become the next Schlager superhit! I am very proud of Kobus Muller and about his ability to learn German so fast. You can’t get this song out of your mind once you have heard it,”

Lichterloh follows the success of his previously released German song – Hey Du, which was produced by Peter Sebastian. Petrol En Vuur has also been referred to by various South African media as the follow-up of his previous Afrikaans hit – Hey June, Kobus Muller also produced a 2IN1 Mix which is a combination of German and Afrikaans. This Single is due for international release on 29 November 2018. Lichterloh will be available on all leading digital platforms worldwide.
