19 Jan 2017 / Competition / written by TATC Staff

Anticipation is running high leading up to the launch of Francois van Coke’s second solo album, “Hierdie is die Lewe”, on the 2nd of February.

Having already released two music videos from the upcoming album: Mensdom to introduce his band, Die Gevaar, and Klein Prys – his ode to Fokofpolisiekar.

“Hierdie is die Lewe is about life, the good, the bad, love and hate, the past, the future and the present,” says Francois Van Coke. 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.

Now to celebrate the release of his upcoming album, we have a deluxe “Hierdie is die Lewe” hamper to giveaway to 1 lucky person. The hamper includes:

  • 1 x 7″ Mensdom vinyl
  • 1 x Hierdie is die Lewe CD
  • 1 x Hierdie is die Lewe vinyl
  • 1 x Double Ticket to Hierdie is die Lewe album launch (Cape Town)
  • 1 x Francois van Coke t-shirt

To enter to win all you have to do is drop a comment at the bottom of this post and use “Hierdie is die Lewe” and “Texx and the City” together in a sentence. Winner will be announced and contacted via email on Friday the 27th of January.
