About Hierdie is die Lewe:

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

Francois crafted the songs over time with his band, Die GevaarHierdie 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 by Jürgen Von Wechmar at the Red Bull Studios in Cape Town.

“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.

PRE-ORDER Hierdie is die Lewe on iTunes NOW.

The album will also be available on Google Play and on 12” vinyl.
