Cape Town – Yes, it’s true, the countdown has begun…
We only have to wait eight more weeks until the release of Francois van Coke’s solo album in the beginning of April.
We. Literally. Can’t. Wait. "I think it’s definitely different from Van Coke Kartel and Fokofpolisiekar. I wanted to do something that is true to myself, very personal and not be restricted to a certain style of music," says Francois van Coke. Francois teamed up with old and new friends to bring this album into being. They include Jedd Kossew, Karen Zoid, Laudo Liebenberg, Hunter Kennedy and Arno Carstens. The album will be released by Supra Familias and will be launched at KKNK in Oudtshoorn, followed by a national tour. His first single, Moontlik Nooit, will be released from his website as a free download on 20 February.
Francois teamed up with Permanent Record to release a limited edition 7” vinyl with this single and an exclusive B-Side that will be released on the same day. Side AThe single, Moontlik Nooit, shows Francois' growth and maturity as a writer and musician. This song further cements his place as the leader of the South African rock 'n roll royal family. Side BThe B-side of the single is a vinyl exclusive acoustic track called Skree. The acoustic version of the Skree was specifically recorded for the 7" vinyl and will be found on this release only.
