"der leiermann" is basically a german version of "tears in the rain". three versions of the track might seem as an overkill (try saying that to covenant fans), but remixes of this excellent track provide enough material for club djs to entertain the crowds for a long time. after all, this is one of the best and most addictive songs on the new album with its highly danceable beats, melancholic atmosphere and wonderful lyrics.

this mcd came out to support full-length "united states of mind" and contains radio edit and club version of the title track as well as original "like tears in the rain" and quite minimal hypnotic "we break down".

with the present cult status of covenant it makes me wonder if it was all that necessary to release all those singles to support "united states of mind". after all, as far as I remember, dependant (as opposed to off-beat) was created to release less albums, focusing on their quality instead. however, I do have to admit, that so far the promotion of all dependant releases was excellent, leaving off-beat legacy far behind.

this is yet another headache for covenant-obsessed freaks out there that will not stop until they get their hands on this release.
