The double CD, Was muss muss, takes its listeners on a musical journey through time with Herbert Grönemeyer that lasts more than two hours: from legendary hits such as Mambo, Vollmond, Männer to Stück vom Himmel, Der Weg, Mensch and his brand-new single.
The ultimate Was muss muss special edition will be released simultaneously, complementing the audio experience of the double CD with a 72-page illustrated book, a DVD featuring all videos, a 10″ remix vinyl and a USB stick featuring rarities, remixes and lots of extras.
