Today sees the release of a hot new single. 

Francois' newest single, Begin Van Die Einde, as well as his new track with Hunter Kennedy and rapper Middelvinger, Alles Is Gecancel, will be performed live at his show, 40 Jaar Van Coke, for the first time. 

Francois explains that the song is about “trying to be better in a time of disorienting change ”.

BBegin Van Die Einde was inspired in part by Yuval Noah Harari's book, '21 Lessons for the 21st Century'. Francois read this book in December 2019 and started worrying about the time we’re living in. He wrote the lyrics for the song in February 2020 and, not long after, COVID-19 knocked on our doors. 

"This song took its turns. I almost deleted it, but was too fond of the lyrics to just let it go. I reworked it a few times, it made acoustic, reworked it and even re-recorded the whole song. Eventually I found the right packaging for it,” Francois further explains.
