New single: There’s My Firstborn Talking
In ‘There’s My Firstborn Talking’, Hans sings of his daughter Djuna, who as a theoretical physics researches black holes, dark matter, dying stars, supernovas, gravitational waves and the very smallest particles at the University of Durham.
When Hans sees and hears his daughter in an online lecture, he experiences his own big bang and thinks back to her turbulent times as an adolescent.
The single version is a bit more compact than the album version, because of the short attention span of the average radio DJ.
Listen to it via Bandcamp, for example.
Revenues March 20 go to Giro555
On Sunday afternoon 20 March we play in Steck, Delft. All revenues from ticket sales for that concert will go to Giro555 of the Cooperating Aid Organisations, aimed at helping Ukranian people. This also applies to the net proceeds of the record sales on that day, both via the webshop and in Steck. Net means: after deduction of production and (if applicable) shipping costs. Example: if you order a Solid Ground LP on March 20, we will transfer € 15 to Giro555.
The seventh album by The Dutch is called Solid Ground. The title song is the second single taken from this album, after Alida Pott which was released in 2021. Read the full story here.
