During an interview with Kaaos TV conducted on July 2 at Provinssi in Seinäjoki, Finland, RAMMSTEIN keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz spoke about the new song "Ramm 4", which opened the band's recent shows and which contains lyrics that seem to be a combination of various titles of previous RAMMSTEIN songs. Regarding why RAMMSTEIN chose to debut the track on the latest tour, he explained: "We wanted to show the world that we are still together and that we are playing and making new music."Lorenz was also asked about the progress of the songwriting sessions for RAMMSTEIN's next album. He said: "We have started to compile ideas for songs and develop them as a band. It is difficult to say how far along we are, because a lot of the time everything seems to be going well, and then there are days when we just want to start the whole process all over again. That is why there is no objective view about how far [into the making of the new album] we are." RAMMSTEIN last year released a 21st-anniversary box set, a numbered, career-wide collection titled "XXI". The set included the band's six studio albums, produced by Jacob Hellner and remastered onto 180-gram heavyweight double vinyl by Svante Forsbäck, as well as a separate rarities double LP, "Raritäten", including a previously unreleased version of the track "Los". RAMMSTEIN hasn't made a new CD since 2009's "Liebe Ist Für Alle Da". The band's frontman Till Lindemann last year released a debut album with his side project LINDEMANN. RAMMSTEIN guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe's EMIGRATE project issued its sophomore album, "Silent So Long", in November 2014 via Spinefarm.
