Out of the Dark Into the Light is the eighth album by Falco. It was released posthumously, less than a month after Falco's death on 6 Februaryin a car accident. In the song Falco plays with the ambiguity of the German word "Koks" which means both cocaine and charcoal.
Although Falco's band leader found Yesterdays Men - Madness - Utter Madness Out of the Dark " good enough to be released as the second single, Falco himself wanted it to be released on the album only. The follow up single became " Naked " which was quite successful in Austria but did not meet Falco's expectations in Germany, leading him to postpone the album release.
