Does the name sound familiar from handball? The vocal of the official song, created with Danish DJ Kongsted, is song by a young and very talented German artist who happens to have the same name as the former handball player from the German national team.
Dominik Klein is working on his first single, which will be released in 2019. The collaboration between him and Kongsted is to extend the great teamwork of Denmark and Germany as co-hosting partners for the championship.
“The Men’s World Championship is set in arenas in both Germany and Denmark and together we have been working for almost two years preparing the largest handball party. But no party without music, so what better opportunity to bring a German and a Danish artist together, to create our official song,” says Mark Schober, chairman of the German Handball Federation.
Morten Stig Christensen, who is Secretary General of the Danish Handball Association, is thrilled to be able to release a championship song that has been co-produced by Danish and German artists. “This song is exactly in the spirit of the championship where our motto is ‘Stand Out’. Kongsted is an experienced producer and DJ whereas Dominik Klein is an upcoming, very talented young singer. That cocktail has brought something new and absolutely outstanding to the championship,” Morten Stig Christensen says.
German artist Dominik Klein is very proud to be a part of the official song: “I have been focusing on making my own music the past year so for me to be a part of something as great as one of the world’s largest sports scenes, is amazing,” he says and continues: “Music takes people to different modes and it connects people. At the championship we will celebrate the sport, the talents, the hard work, the achievements and of course the supportive fans. Full arenas with the best handball in the world, needs a song that gets us all excited and ready to party.”
Dominik Klein and Kongsted will be performing the official song live in Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin at the official opening match on January 10th, 2019 and at the final in Boxen, Herning, Denmark on January 27th 2019.
“Performing together with Kongsted and singing live in front of thousands of fans will definitely be amazing. I am so much looking forward to give myself entirely – and then some – singing together with the fans, cheering for the teams. I really can’t wait,” says Dominik Klein.
The official song will be released on January 4th 2019.
