    Rammstein have released a video for “Ausländer,” a cut from their recently released eponymous album.

    The satirical sociopolitical video follows the German outfit as a rag-tag band of exploitative colonialists who land on an exotic island. They soon start changing the island for their own needs, before finally leaving when they no longer have a need for the place. “Other countries, other tongues, so I forced myself early on / To the chagrin of misunderstanding, that you have to learn languages / And when the sun sets and you stand in front of foreigners / It is helpful if you can make yourself understood,” frontman Till Lindemann sings.

    “Ausländer” is the latest track from Rammstein to get the visual treatment, following “Radio” and “Deutschland.”
