BLIND GUARDIAN recently completed a video for "Another Stranger Me". When asked why the band chose that particular track, vocalist Hansi Kürsch responds, "Because it's a very unusual song for BLIND GUARDIAN. It has a very vivid power and it's very straightforward. This song is about a schizophrenic person who discovers his multiple 'eyes' and tries to find a way out. We try to transfer this to the detective [character] who just figured that he’s being hunted by several very vigilant persons and he tries to get out of that desperate situation. The other selves, the other 'eyes' in the story, they are very vicious and do not have any intentions to live on a peaceful status with the detective. They're just fooling him and trying to make him a lunatic — which he is already."
