"Animal Instinct" is a song performed by former DSDS-contestant Annemarie Eilfeld under the pseudonym Annemie. It's a first single from her forthcoming debut studio album "I'm Burning Up". It is produced and published by the German record company x-cell records and was released on May 11, 2010, in Germany as a digital download and on May 14, 2010, as a 2-track CD single.[1]

Background and release[edit]

Eilfeld gained fame when she took part at German casting show Deutschland sucht den Superstar (DSDS), the German version of the Idol-franchise, in 2009. Though she made it to third place, she didn't want to get a contract with manager Volker Neumüller or producer Dieter Bohlen. Instead she decided to work on her music career on her own and signed to label x-cell records on September 1 of that year. During the recording and producing of "Animal Instinct" she worked with Detlef D! Soost, a choreographer from the German edition of Popstars. The video of this song was released exclusively on on April 21, 2010.
