Musician Joel Brandenstein has recorded a new duet. The lucky guy was able to bring Vanessa Mai into the studio for his new single “Heaven is opening up”

“The sky is tearing open” combines all the strengths that make Joel Brandenstein so different in the German pop landscape: his unmistakable feel for great melodies, his touching piano playing and of course his immediately recognizable voice, the duet with Vanessa Mai that goes deep under the skin is contrasted. The song tells of a fateful encounter that suddenly changes all of life: About meeting this very special person from his dreams. Counterpart, soul mate, dream man / dream woman – a thousand different words for the one person you have always been waiting for. The moment when the clouds finally open and the sun shines.

“I agreed immediately”

“The song is about never giving up hope of eventually finding true love,” said the singer and musician from Ratingen about his new song. “Even if it takes a little longer for some people, it is all the more fulfilling when the moment finally comes. When I wrote the song it was clear to me that it would be perfect for a duet. Vanessa was the first to come to my mind as a duet partner. She was the first one I asked about it. And she was the only one, because luckily she said yes! ”
