We at Unday Records have been big fans of the quiescent yet magnificent work of Jan Swerts for years, so we are delighted he will be joining the ranks for his fourth album. In November 'Oud Zeer’ will be released, a theme album about graveyards, death and transience. The ten piano songs are all named after epitaphs that Swerts read in recent years. 'Oud Zeer’ is a memento mori, in which Swerts, in his distinctive blend of singer-songwriter and classical music, reminds the listener of the comforting fact that we will soon be gone forever.
In anticipation of the album release, we are lifting the veil with a first single, coming very soon.
