We didn’t have any music news last week because of the faux long weekend and public holidays and everything, so here’s a collection of DOUBLE MUSIC NEWS! Featuring Tima Reece, Easy Freak, Depeche Mode, Zara Larsson, Len Muller, Apple Gule, Adventure Man, and Josh Kempen!
Tima Reece released anew single Gone – the second from her album 9.
“I was so inspired by the incredible production that Kurt Herman & Llewellyn George had come up with, that it literally took me 20 minutes to write all the melodies and lyrics – in my study. After singing the rough idea to Kurt, he freaked out and made me record it the next day. It really was birthed that quickly!” – Tima Reece

“For this single we went back to a groovy and funky sound, and we’re so excited for people to jam to this new single. We’re really proud of it and privileged to have been able to work with an incredible artist like Raheem Kemet, who brought a new level of energy to our sound.” – Easy Freak

Len Muller het ‘n nuwe musiekvideo vrygestel vir sy enkelsnit Ek Glo.
“Baie goeie vriende van my se troue is so ’n rukkie terug op video vasgevang. ’n Paar jaar later, was hulle eersteling op pad en die swangerskap op presies dieselfde plek afgeneem. Die idee met die video, was om ’n egte, ware liefdesverhaal te vertel van twee dierbare vriende wat elke dag dié groot geloofsprong neem. Ons wou vir mense wys dat jy steeds gelukkig getroud kan wees as jy bereid is om saam met iemand te waag in geloof.” – Len Muller
Apple Gule released a new single: Fan Girl.
His debut album, SWAZiKiD, is due for digital release on 21 April and on CD 24 April. It’s already available for pre-order on iTunes.
Adventure Man released their sophomore album, Dog Daze.
“I chose the name Dog Daze because I love the pun; the idea that a dog’s love can put you in a daze, but I also know that there might come a time in life when I won’t be able to have a dog and then I could always reminisce about the days that I did.” – Gad de Combes, Adventure Man frontman
You can get Dog Daze on iTunes.
Josh Kempen released a music video for Leave Me If You Can.
“This is a song about finding yourself in a relationship only because of the fear of being alone and the weight of a wonderful past you had together. It’s saying; ‘there’s no way I’m strong enough to do this, and we can’t stop fighting, so why don’t YOU leave me if you can?’, and then, in the same breath, saying, ‘oh, remember this? Remember how good we actually are? So how could we possibly leave each other?’.” – Josh Kempen
