Lemper has also forged a strong identity as an interpretive singer, recording Illusions in 1992, devoted to the songs of Marlene Dietrich and Édith Piaf. She has numerous pop albums in various languages, including the lauded Punishing Kiss, which featured songs written especially for her by Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Philip Glass, and Neil Hannon. Her latest album, Ute Lemper: Between Yesterday and Tomorrow, featuring her own compositions, was released last year. Lemper last performed in Israel in 2003 at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat.
