Chris Chameleon To Release Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy.
‘Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy’ is Chris Chameleon‘s first self-composed Afrikaans work since 2009. This long-awaited album was inspired by Chris’ personal experiences with the search for and experience of love. The texts of the songs are in most cases poems he wrote while he was smitten.
Chris Chameleon says that the album is a work of emotional disclosure. He speaks in the album about God, his beloved and matters of the heart.
“The album was not made on demand or because it was time or because I had enough songs for a new album. I gave myself full, unrestricted freedom of music and lyrics. I did not disguise my feelings with artistic conjuring or ribbons and bows. The texts were often written in free verse or naked prose, while still finding their form in the regularity of song.
This was a process that took a lot of honesty from me. I am humbled by the mystery of love and was inspired to write an album that extended beyond the understanding of my mind.” He says.
‘Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy’ will be available from Groot Tunes from May 2nd. (Pre-orders on Groot Tunes from April 24th.) The album will also be available in stores and on other digital platforms from May 8th.
