Get Well Soon is a music and band project of the German singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Konstantin Gropper. He has released five albums and a number of EPs and singles. This digital compilation combines 3 EP from 2014, released as one package.

‘m very happy to announce the release of new music by Get Well Soon. After a lot of excursions to the fields of production, theatre, film and television, it‘s about time again. For a new album you will have to wait a bit longer though, but make it worth your while, 3 EPs will be released in November. Each with its own theme and its own release date:

These EPs are projects I‘ve been meaning to do for a long time, but they wouldn‘t fit on on album together and shouldn‘t fill a full album. They will be releaesd as a limited edition of 10“ vinyl records and as digital download The gorgeous artwork is by Hermann Schenkel.

Here‘s a bit more information on what awaits you…

I don‘t know exactly, if has been an early midlife-crisis or a second puberty, a simple rush of nostalgia or an identity crisis that led to the question: Why did I start this in the first place? In any case it led me back to the music, that made me want to have a guitar and start a band. I think they used to call it College Rock. And I swear I started to have pimples again when I produced these songs.

This one‘s a reverence to one of my favorite authors: Arnold Stadler. Or maybe it‘s a salute to his 60th birthday this year. Mostly his novel „Death and me, the two of us“ („Der Tod und ich, wir zwei“) has been accompanying and inspring me for quite a while now. These five songs are a musical hommage to this very romantic, dark, smart and funny book. Self-pitty, crooked biographies, fear of being alone, the ridiculousness of life and most of all the great longing. Just like in one of Stadler‘s most famous quotes: ,Once in this world and then like this.‘ I could go on forever about the content, but I‘d much rather recommend to read the novel. I also hope, this music will work on its own, too.

GREATEST HITS (November 21st)
Cover versions have a bit of a tradition with Get Well Soon. This EP is just a small collection of songs that I wanted to reinterpret. It has been my long-standing plan to cover only superhits on one record (I thought, I‘d learn something), but somehow that got lost somewhere along the way. That‘s why there are only three superhits and three secret hits on thsi EP. These versions were developed for very different reasons and occasions over the years. I hope the selection is quite controversial.
