Haag, Robert

German singer Robert Haag first made a name for himself in 2014 when he recorded ‘Pommes Mit Senf’ (‘Fries With Mustard’) together with Markus Becker. The song was a cover of Nick Kamen’s ‘I Promised Myself’, inspired by a German friend who always sang that song as ‘Pommes Mit Senf’. (A kind of Mondegreen in German).

In 2015, Robert tried to follow up this relative success with a cover of Kim Wilde’s Kids in America – re-recorded in German as ‘Verliebt in Veronika’ (In love with Veronika’).
