Dave Stewart Teams With “99 Luftballoons” Nena For New Song

Gabriele Susanne Kerner, AKA Nena and Dave Stewart have a brand new song together titled ‘Be My Rebel’.

Nena recently celebrated 40 years in the world of pop. Internationally renowned for her mega-hit ’99 Red Balloons’ which conquered the charts around the world between 1983 and 1984, was number one in 15 countries, and sold in excess of 3million copies. Having sold upwards of 25 million records to date, Nena has gone on to be one of the biggest recording artists of all time in her native Germany.

Meanwhile in Dave Stewart’s house sometime in 2017….

Nena performed a concert in L.A. for Dave Stewart, who has been wanting to meet Nena for a long time. Following the performance, the two arranged a songwriting session for the very next day. Nena turned up at Dave’s house and made a grand entrance shouting “The Krauts are here!” With Dave thinking Nena said “The crowd is here,” he expected the singer had turned up with “27 relatives.” Actually, only five of her “crowd” were relatives: her children and husband, and the rest were The Krauts. First on the agenda was to give them a tour of the house. But, with the number of people, the writing sessions needed to take first priority, so Dave asked all The Krauts, except Nena, to wait at the “nice little cafĂ© around the corner.”

Meanwhile, still in Dave Stewart’s house….

Yearlong stories were shortened to minutes. That’s how quickly Nena and Dave shared their stories and memories. They understood each other as if they experienced everything themselves instead of hearing it for the first time. Or like Dave said: “Nena is one of the people you like instantly.” And Nena: “I was so excited to finally meet Dave – during this time we laughed the entire time!”
