South Africa’s most successful and acclaimed Afrikaans Alternative Pop group, Die Heuwels Fantasties, is back with a new release due for the end of November 2013. Wens jy was hier (Wish you were here) is a deluxe album comprising of an EP with five brand new tracks, the Alles wat Mal is album and the Live op Paul Cluver DVD.
The songs on the EP were inspired by Die Heuwels Fantasties’ love for Vleesbaai. “We stared at the ocean, played the songs until they felt good and we recorded the tracks immediately afterwards, “ says Pierre Greeff, lead singer of the band. The EP includes Welkom featuring Laudo Liebenberg from aKING and two bonus tracks, one of which is a collaboration with Mandoza called Afrikaan.
Wens jy was hier track list:
Aanhouer Wen (Hou Aan)
Welkom ft Laudo Liebenberg
Wie is in beheer
Somer in my kop
Toks en Tjops ft Bok van Blerk & Robbie Wessels
Afrikaan ft Mandoza
The highly praised Alles wat Mal is album was released at the end of 2012 and received Gold status in sales within three months. Die Heuwels Fantasties’ Live DVD, Live op Paul Cluver, is a gem and was released in May this year. The combination of these three exquisite features makes the Wens jy was hier deluxe a must-have for this year’s Christmas stocking.
A music video for Aanhouer Wen will be released early November.
