Many people in Hamburg know him from HSV, where he and his friend and partner Lotto King Karl have been greeting football fans in the stadium from a crane with the song "Hamburg meine Perle" for exactly 10 years now. This has given the two a real cult status, which is known far beyond the borders of Hamburg. But many people all over Germany also know him from his former band Clowns und Helden, who landed more than just a normal little hit with the hit "I Love You". This track has been playing in discotheques and on the radio for over twenty years. Now he has returned to his roots. Carsten Pape has made a new album: "The Swimmer's Loneliness"! Carsten Pape attaches particular importance to one thing. "You hear a band here and not a singer who is simply accompanied." The songs were worked out together and you can feel that when you listen to them. But what awaits you? Can you characterize the album in a few words? "The best thing, I think, is to quote a good friend of ours to whom we recently played the album: The album gives me a melancholy that makes me dance!"
