David Hasselhoff Celebrates German Unity In Rock Style

At the time when it’s cool to be uncool, it’s time for David Hasselhoff to release a new album – with an array of covers sung in the company of heavy guests. It might be another over-the-web project, yet that’s a sign of the time, too, so “Open Your Eyes” – out on September 27th on CD and colored vinyl – must be interesting thanks to the singing actor’s choice of material and the instrumentalists who play with him, as well as for the fact that the record is aimed to mark the 30th anniversary of Berlin Wall’s fall and the reunification of Germany. If one struggles to imagine The Hoff mingle with MINISTRY and Patrick Moraz or stepping into David Coverdale‘s shoes, this can be a thing to investigate. Whether the revisiting of David’s old hit “Jump In My Car” was worth it remains to be seen.
