With the help of Red Bull and Jägermeister, Francois roped in old and new friends to unleash the En Vriende (And Friends) EP. This 4-track EP features epic collaborations with Jack Parow, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Early B and AKING’s frontman, Laudo Liebenberg.
The En Vriende EP has a big sound, ranging from rock to punk to hip-hop, showcasing Francois’ diversity as an artist.
‘’All four of these collaborating artists are part of the Francois van Coke & Vriende production. I wanted to release new music this year before my 3rd full-length album drops in 2019. After everything came together for the show in Pretoria, it felt like a great idea to write music with some of these ‘vriende’. With the help of Red Bull Studios Cape Town and Jägermeister, we were able to pull off a great sounding EP. It is going to be awesome to perform a track like the one I have done with Early B titled Altyd lief vir jou for the first time at the Sun Arena,’’ says Francois.
The idea for the EP was fuelled by the AMP Events production Francois van Coke & Vriende (in association with kykNET and Jacaranda FM) which is taking place at Sun Arena, Time Square in Pretoria on September 15.
