Cape Town - A slew of local musicians listed below have got together to perform Borrowed Time to honour Piet Botha after his death earlier this year.

The single was launched on all digital platforms on Thursday, 18 July which would have been Piet Botha's birthday. Piet died at the age 63.

Composed and arranged by Andre Kriel the track features the Jack Hammer band Johno, Tertius and Paul, together with Andre and Kobus from The Black Cat Bones, Arthur and Rudolph Dennis, Gareth Wilson and finally the Van Der Walt Brothers Lanie, Chris and Heine aka 'The Wolmers'. 

A part of the collaboration was tracked and engineered in June 2019 by Lanie van der Walt at the famed Wolmer Records in Pretoria North where Piet recorded most of his albums in both the Jack Hammer band as well as his solo offerings. 

Arthur and Rudi Dennis laid down their vocals and guitar in Strand, Western Cape at Riku Lätti's 'Wasgoedly n' studios and the entire process was documented and edited into a live studio music video by the acclaimed Image Engineer's Fred van Leeuwen.
