Deezer, the global music streaming service is proud to release a new Deezer Sessions EP with South Africa Deezer NEXT artist Bianca Blanc. Produced by Matthew Fink, the four track EP consists of three re-worked tracks from Bianca’s self-titled debut album and a cover of her favourite song by Francois Van Coke.
On this exclusive EP, Bianca experiments with different musical styles by creating a sultry jazz version of her hit single “Butterflies,” a moody ballad of “Fire,” wrapped in flamenco guitar from Martin Schofield of Wonderboom fame and an upbeat tropical house remix of “Good Vibes” by Ramdaz.
Bianca also shares her personal favourite song with her fans, with the beautiful ballad cover of “Behoort Aan Niemand Nie” by iconic musician Francois Van Coke. The song features a string arrangement by Waldo Alexander and is the first official song that Bianca has recorded in Afrikaans, her mother tongue.
Bianca Blanc says: “This has been an incredible project. I’ve been afforded a wonderful opportunity to work with different musicians and explore creative avenues that I haven’t worked in before. I’d like to thank Deezer for their continued support and I’m very excited to share my Deezer Sessions EP with all my fans”
