Deutschland sucht die Superhymne
Germany in search of the Super-anthem
We are looking for a new anthem in order to replace the old one. A song people here like to relate to – a song up to date with our times.
Join in – create the super-anthem!
What makes a song an anthem? What is it supposed to represent? Which story is it to tell? Which form is it to have? Can it originate from the spirit of the age? And: How can a contemporary anthem be composed today, as the concept of the national state undergoes changes?
Everyone can take part, no matter from where, what age or in which language. Amateurs and professional musicians are all welcome. All music genres are possible. The only prerequisite: The song is to express an own idea of, a personal relation to Germany.
