Supermodel, entrepreneur, fashion designer and presenter – now Klum is once again stepping into the spotlight as a singer.
“Sunglasses At Night” is available since today, Friday. The single is also the title song of the upcoming season of “Germany’s Next Top Model” (“GNTM”), which premieres on ProSieben on February 15th. With an upbeat beat, Klum sings the catchy refrain “I wear my sunglasses at night”, mixed and produced by the Dutch DJ star Tiësto. If you’re out at parties at night and your make-up is easily smeared, then sunglasses “as a protective shield” would simply be cool, says Klum in the interview.

The song was “cool” even as a teenager
She thought the song was “cool” even as a teenager. At that time she was enthusiastic about Depeche Mode, Wham!, Funk, but also 80s and early 90s pop. Canadian pop musician Corey Hart scored a new wave hit in 1984 with “Sunglasses at Night.” The song later became a classic in commercials and video games (“Grand Theft Auto: Vice City”).

Klum admits that she would sing songs like this in the shower all the time. That’s when she came up with the idea of reinterpreting the track’s catchy melody in a new, modern way. Tiësto immediately agreed and said it was “a dream come true” for her. Her voice is usually very high, Klum admits with a grin. “But I went a few octaves lower. I don’t think it sounds quite as shrill.”
No Kaulitz had a hand in it
She didn’t get any help from her husband, musician Tom Kaulitz (34), or his brother, Tokio Hotel singer Bill Kaulitz.

For people like her – “who maybe can’t sing that well” – there are great machines in the recording studio to help with notes “that are a bit crooked and crooked”.
Of course they would have recorded many takes and chosen the best ones. Klum’s conclusion: “You can make music even if you don’t have a great voice, but if the vibe is right and people like it.”

It is Klum’s third appearance as a singer. In 2006, when she was still married to singer Seal, she released the Christmas song “Wonderland”. Two years ago, the top model teamed up with rapper Snoop Dogg for the dance track “Chai Tea with Heidi”, which became the theme song of the 17th season of “Germany’s Next Top Model”.
