Over the course of the past three decades, Herbert Grönemeyer has established himself as Germany’s most successful recording artist of all time, with album sales surpassing 18 million copies, and two of his albums, 1984′s 4630 Bochum and 2002′s Mensch, becoming the biggest German-language releases in history.

"I Walk," the English-language debut in the U.S. for Grönemeyer, was released on February 26, 2013 on Groenland Deutschland/EMI Label Services. For this album, Grönemeyer recorded some of the most impressive songs in his vast catalog in English, and wrote two new songs.

On the album’s lead-off track, “Mensch,” Grönemeyer is joined on vocals by Bono, one of the special guests on the album, along with Antony Hegarty of Antony and The Johnsons on the dramatic “Will I Ever Learn” (“When he started singing, my skin went up,” Grönemeyer recalls) and guitarist James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers on “To The Sea.”
