The first music video from Hierdie Is Die Lewe arrived hot on the heels of the birth of Francois' daughter. On Thursday, at a listening session that was hosted at Red Bull Studios in Cape Town, Francois Van Coke performed a selection of new songs live and guests were invited to preview the album in the studio afterward.

Hierdie is die Lewe will be released on 2 February 2017. It's about life, the good, the bad, love and hate, the past, the future and the present. This album is the natural progression from his successful self-titled debut and you cannot deny the influence of The Beatles and the Pet Shop Boys (that is going to be thrown around a lot) that colours the album.
