Wish it were longer. Really like the mix, it has a nice blend of raw, clean and up-close on the one hand versus technical sheen/modern elements. I don't know what that string instrument is at right, but I really like that, too, especially when you bring it in from the side, make it louder and toward center. You've even got bird sounds, right?. Unfortunately that's where the song ends. Very cool though, what's there.

2nd-ish listen: I think I'd add some reverb on that side stick, just a hit here and there, so the reverberations open up some territory toward the back and left/right of center of soundscape.

Yep. We do like doing cultural cross-over projects
(We also have a French song with Turkish lyrics.)

"Fake News" actually is a term used in German, there is no decent German translation.

Re the German lyrics:
The "spoken" parts of song are about a desperate present and scary future, and declining ethics.
The sung refrain says "let's fight the emptiness until the chains brake - hand in hand".

Hence the song title is "Hand in Hand" (written the same in German as in English)

That's what I was thinking. They're the only words I understood, or at least thought I was hearing. I don't speak/understand German. Thanks for the translation, the ideas are important ones.
