Tokio Hotel's new album "Humanoid" has been completed. In advance of the album's release on October 2, its lead single titled "Automatic" will be put out for purchase sometime in mid September.
"Bill and Tom [Kaulitz] were on their way from their hotel in West Hollywood to our studio - originally to record Bill's vocals. Just before the guys arrived Bill called from the car and said that he had an idea for a song which should be named 'Automatic'," producer David Jost e-mailed MTV. "We put the vocal recordings on hold that day and wrote down the entire song in less than two hours."
Frontman Bill Kaulitz added, "It's different for each song, we don't follow a formula. With some of the songs we did many interim versions until we were finally satisfied. Some tracks initially refused to be the way we had planned them out, and then there were others where we just had to allow the song to guide us."
In another occasion, Bill previously explained "Humanoid" indeed will be different and "probably surprise a lot of people." He said, "[The new songs] handle about our mood, new thoughts and reflections, and also new wishes and hopes. ... We have a song but there are many different ways to interpret the song. And we have to find the best interpretation. We, then start to experiment with each song by changing the guitar-sounds or modifying my voice."
