The tingle starts again. On Friday our third song will be released. It will be called 'fæːlɐ'. And it's about the most beautiful mistakes in the world.
We all make mistakes. It's hard to avoid. And sometimes the most difficult thing is to come to terms with our own mistakes. Then they lie leaden and black on us and take our breath away. However, it is often only a matter of perspective whether something was a mistake in the first place. Sometimes it turns out in retrospect that something good came out of it. Sometimes what we see as a disaster is a stroke of luck for someone else. And sometimes mistakes have terrible consequences, but they happen out of such clearly good intentions that it brings tears to your eyes. Jin's decision to accompany Masha to Ukraine may be such a case. Or her stunt with our punctured oil tank.
Honestly, Jin is a downright expert on beautiful mistakes in general, and it's not hard to guess that she was a major source of inspiration for the song. Often, she frets about it terribly. But would the world be a better place if these mistakes hadn't happened? I hardly think so. On the contrary - it would be so much poorer without people like Jin, who always want the best, always play with full commitment, of course losing sometimes, breaking glass and standing amidst the colored shards.
What about you? Are there any beautiful mistakes you can tell us about? Whether they happened to you or to friends or people you know. We want to hear your stories. And if it's okay with you, we will publish them (anonymously or not, as you like) in our story on release day. Just send us a message.
