Witst noch dat d’r neat wie (CD + book)
MR 33/ SR119 ● CD ● 2021
On November 19, Witst noch dat d’r neat wie, the second Frisian-language album by Zea and the successor to the much acclaimed Moarn gean ik dea from 2017, will be released.
Intimate and poetic lyrics always form the basis of this album. Language and linguistics are recurring themes on the album and in Zea’s life. The music is acoustic, heart-felt, personal and minimal.
The album comes with a book in which the Frisian songs have been translated into Dutch and English and a fourth language that fits the song. For its new album, ZEA uses, in addition to its own lyrics, works by Bert Schierbeek, Hans Faverey, Anne Wadman and Benjamin Mays.
A three-day tour will follow in the release weekend, starting at Explore the North in Leeuwarden on 19/11. This is followed by performances at the Willem de Zwijgerkerk, Amsterdam and at WORM, Rotterdam.
Some of the translations in the songbook of Witst noch dat d’r neat wie were made by musician friends. During the release tour some of them will perform, in which they will also play together with Zea in addition to their own music. For example, songs from the album in Vietnamese, Scottish and Sranantongo will also be heard during the tour.
