So happy to release my new single this Friday! 😁 Recording Skunk Anansie‘s ‘Weak’ as a piano ballad was such fun and a great honour!! Special thanks to the man who I not only share my dreams with, but also made this song just as special and beautiful with this production and the way he plays the piano, my hubby Tjeerd P.
