This album is the natural progression from his successful and acclaimed self-titled debut album and can be viewed as a snapshot of where Francois is in his life right now.  The sound is similar to the first album and Francois stays introspective.

Three months is a long time to wait, so Francois debut’s the first single and music video from the upcoming album, Mensdom (Mankind) on 10 November 2016.

Francois on Mensdom: “We all have one thing in common – we live, even if everything else is different.  This song is about life and living with victories as well as mistakes.”

More about Hierdie is die Lewe album:

Francois crafted the songs over time with his band, Die Gevaar.  Hierdie is die Lewe was produced by Johnny de Ridder (Fokofpolisiekar guitarist) and Rudolph Willemse (Francois’ bassist) at Soft Light City in Bellville.  The drums were recorded at the Red Bull Studios in Cape Town by Jürgen Von Mechmar.

“I’ve been listening to older pop tunes by Beach Boys and The Beatles and their influences can be heard on my album’s melodies and sound.  There are still a few rock ‘n roll numbers and some ballads,” says Francois.
