Johann Hölzel, better known by his stage name Falco, was an Austrian singer, songwriter and rapper. Einzelhaft, (Solitary Confinement or Incarcerated!), is his first album. It was released in Austria, Germany, the United States, Japan, Spain, Italy, Canada, Sweden and Finland. The album achieved some success with its flagship single, "Der Kommissar", an innovative and influential German-language rap song. A Promo Single, "Auf der Flucht (On the Run)", was released in the USA and France. In 1983 the single "Maschine Brennt / On the Run" CD hit #9 of US Club Play Singles. Other songs on Einzelhaft are heavily indebted to the "Berlin Trilogy" of David Bowie: "Nie mehr Schule" borrows its music from Bowie's instrumental track from Low called "Speed of Life", whereas "Helden von heute" is a transparent rewrite of Bowie's song, "Heroes".
