O Tannenbaum

from O Tannenbaum by Martin Tetzlaff



2020 was a shit of a year. Blending to this sad period of everyone's year I decided to make a suitable version of the Christmas classic "O Tannenbaum". Can should hear the Christmas tree burning at the end of the track!
I hope you will like it!

Please get this track and support the Berlin-based bar "Posh Teckel"(www.poshteckel.de). These folks need every support and I decided to forward them all income from bandcamp until Corona is over. Make them a very merry Christmas please!

Stay healthy and alive. Merry christmas to you!



O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
Wie treu sind deine Blätter;
du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,
nein auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Blätter.

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen;
wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit
ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen.

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mir was lehren:
die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
giebt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit!
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mir was lehren.

Martin’s songs evoke a landscape both melancholy and reassuring, like a bleak landscape seen from a train window on the way home from an failed tryst.

His many self-produced recordings blend rock instrumentation with electronic elements, and range from hushed folk to bombastic power pop.
