She was married 1996 to Alexander Hacke (member of a band Einstürzende Neubauten), who contributed songs to Becker's albums, including Noctambule. They separated in 2000 and divorced two years later. Becker was a guest musician on Einstürzende Neubauten's album Ende Neu, singing "Stella Maris" - in a duet with Blixa Bargeld.
Meret has since recorded two studio albums, Nachtmahr and Fragiles. Just like the first album, both of them contain songs, poetry and short stories, played with unusual instruments and avant-garde arrangements. In 1993, she appeared as the female singer in the U2 video for Stay (Faraway, So Close!). In 2005, she was a supporting actress in the film Munich, directed by Steven Spielberg.
