Hubert von Goisern: Zeiten und Zeichen

Zeiten und ZeichenZeiten & Zeichen brings together all of the ideas and many influences that Hubert von Goisern has been able to collect over the decades as an active musician, as a traveller and as a person curious about the world. The new album is a modern distillate of this musical journey.

Alongside Zeiten & Zeichen's album release, a selection of singles from the album were filmed for the audience patiently awaiting the start of Hubert von Goisern's live tour, postponed until 2022. With help from filmmakers Stefan Wascher and Petra Hinterberger, the compositions sprang to life in settings as diverse as the iconic Lehar Theater in Bad Ischl, a sun-drenched river bank, and the cobbled alleys of Salzburg Old Town.

Hubert von Goisern: Brauner Reiter

"Brauner Reiter" - out 17 July 2020

Brauner Reiter - Hubert von Goisern has never been at a loss for political statements in his songs. And Brauner Reiter deals with exactly what you immediately associate with the title: the misfortune into which a society plunges, if it gives free rein to right wing movements. And there's the promise that everything will improve if you let go of backward thinking. All packaged in a dark, punchy rock number with hard guitar riffs and pounding rhythm. Ominous but forgiving. Dark, but stirring.

"Freunde ... (das Leben ist lebenswert)" - out 28 August 2020

Friends ... (Life is worth living) - There are stories we don't like to tell and don't like to hear, of dark times and equally dark fates, of inconceivabilities and the abysmal depths of humanity. They belong to the history of mankind, they are a part of us. They don't disappear just because we don't remember them. They are invisible and we run the risk of crashing into them in moments of carelessness. Together with tenor Andreas Schager and rapper DAME, Hubert von Goisern tells the harrowing story of loving life in times of apocalypse.

Hubert von Goisern: Eiweiß

Hubert von Goisern - Eiweiß

Eiweiß - out 2 October 2020

Eiweiß - Hubert von Goisern entered the Austrian album charts at number 2 with his new album Zeiten & Zeichen and following the singles Freunde ... (das Leben ist lebenswert), Brauner Reiter and A Tag wie heut, here's the third video – this time for Eiweiß: a swinging, cheerful, almost Caribbean-esque song, which packs a punch.

"[…] The interplay between ballads and liveliness, between melancholy and irony, provide for some surprising moments in the 17 new songs on Zeiten & Zeichen. On the track Eiweiß (Protein) for example. It's about a polar bear: " Er wär so gern Veganer und lutschert nur Stana … Er wird amoi Tibeter. Irgendwann später." (He'd so love to be a vegan, he'd only suck stones … one day he'll be a Tibetan. Sometime later.) But until that day, he still likes flesh and blood, because he needs protein – at any price. Political correctness? Von Goisern believes in the proteins of poetry."(

Meiner Seel' - out 23 October 2020

Upon My Soul - What is true? What is false? What is askew - and will it ever be put straight? In Meiner Seel' Hubert von Goisern sings about the blurring of the line between fact and opinion, and how black and white are sometimes just colours. That we should trust. A melancholy song, but full of warmth, soulfully accompanied by a string quartet. A song that leaves you with a sense of hope.

Dunkelrot - out 17 November 2020

Dark red - Dark red and dark blue - cool, distant starlight on the one hand and glowing, warming closeness on the other. Hubert von Goisern has devoted a song to each of these sides on his album Zeiten & Zeichen, and it is the warm, sensitive side he sets to music in Dunkelrot. A gentle, melancholy melody with lyrics rich with imagery evoking a feeling of security. A song for the winter. An exquisite song about love.
