For his 2011 album Das Alles Bin Ich, schlager pop veteran Howard Carpendale (who has sold over 25 million records in his career) updates his old hit song "Jetzt Bin Ich 34" as "Jetzt Bin Ich 64" -- "Now I'm 64." But while Carpendale is now 30 years older, he still offers the same type of schlager balladry and uptempo pop songs that have ensured his success over the years -- now instilled with a few humorous observations on the process of getting older. The deluxe CD/DVD edition includes three bonus tracks sung in English, the video clip for "Das Alles Bin Ich," and a making-of feature.
