Dutch singer Sharon Kovacs has just released her third album, Child Of Sin, and the title track is a duet with Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann.

The track is a dramatic piano ballad, with a lyric that talks of young adventure, love and lust. Lindemann sings his part entirely in English, with lines that conjure up the kind of weird darkness typical of the Du Hast hitmaker.

When you were nine years old
We terrorised these streets
From dusk till dawn
But when I turned sixteen
My dirty hands would bleed
From banging at your door

Where should I begin?
Where should I begin?
I'd seen it all before
And it will never end
It will never end
You're not a child of love
You're a child of sin
 

Lindemann's Skills In Pills album was also sung in English, before the singer reverted to German for album number two, F & M

Only the audio from Child Of Sin has been released so far, although a video has been shot by Pink Rabbit, a production company based in Amsterdam, who shared some photos from the shoot (opens in new tab) on their Instagram page in November.
