‘I want to give a bigger picture of myself as an artist and songwriter.’
When Frans announced his debut album, he commented on his experiences for the past few years and is looking forward to the release of his debut album.
Being a 16-year-old to be part of the incredible success of my song “If I Were Sorry” had was fantastic. Today I am 21 years old and have explored a larger spectrum of sounds and forms of expression that I myself feel at home in. I constantly strive to be better at what I do, which has taken time.
I want to give a bigger picture of myself as an artist and songwriter.
I am very happy and grateful to have released this album.
“Present” is a gift to myself but also to anyone who wants to listen to my new music. 😊Frans on his experiences for the past five years and the release of his debut album (translated)
