Jörn-Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen (born 10 March 1960)[1] is a German keyboard player, producer and composer. He was the keyboardist of the band Nena and co-wrote their world famous hit "99 Luftballons" as well as another great hit entitled "Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann" (German for somehow, somewhere, sometime).



In 2011, Fahrenkrog-Petersen joined forces with former Modern Talking lead singer Thomas Anders as a dance-pop duo Anders/Fahrenkrog. The two released their first single "Gigolo" on 27 May 2011, followed by the album "Two" on 10 June.[2] The album peaked at No. 11 in the German album charts.
