FRANCOIS VAN COKE’s Debut Solo Album and First Music Video

The wait is over…

2015 is FRANCOIS VAN COKE’s year. He takes a new path with his self-titled debut solo album… doing things his way. He has screamed enough. He lays himself open on probably one of the most exciting releases of 2015. Francois van Coke’s album is out NOW and available on iTunes, in shops and at his shows.
The iconic frontman of legendary groups Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel launched his solo career with the successful release of his first single, Moontlik Nooit from his website on the 20th of February. The next single is the heartbreakingly beautiful ballad, Toe Vind Ek Jou featuring Karen Zoid.

The First Music Video: Toe Vind Ek Jou featuring Karen Zoid

Toe Vind Ek Jou is one of the most beautiful Afrikaans ballads of 2015. Francois and Karen became best friends quickly and easily in the past year. She inspired Francois to make himself vulnerable with this song. The viewer will feel it, hear it and see it – the perfect harmony.

Every song on this album is individually unique, but there runs a golden thread through the album that is exceptionally Francois van Coke.

This album celebrates a new chapter in Francois van Coke’s personal life and career. It is a rock based album, imbued with folk, country, alternative, industrial and even pop influences. The songs as a whole are not as heavy as the bands (Fokofpolisiekar & Van Coke Kartel) Francois plays in.
