Multi-faceted singer songwriter Janie Bay returns with her new Afrikaans single Jammer. The single follows the trend of Janie embracing Afrikaans in her song-writing following the success of her recent hits ‘Amper Daar’ and ‘Die Heelal’ and is now available for download on all your favourite digital platforms.
Janie says that after she wrote the song, she instantly knew that this will be her next single release: “I wrote Jammer as an apology to someone that I hurt. I was processing the emotions around what happened for quite a while. Why is it so hard to apologize? When I eventually penned the lyrics, it flowed onto paper within minutes. I literally wrote it while I had my morning coffee.”
The production of the song almost had to happen overnight as lockdown in SA loomed early March. Janie recorded the vocals at Popkult in Potchefstroom with producers Ewald Janse van Rensburg & Dolf Willemse. She says: “I did the vocals in two hours. I am amazed by the fact that there was such a fast pace to the making of this song. For me it is as if this song really wanted to Be, the process just happened with such an ease. I am very happy with how the song turned out. Whether there are external factors or not, when one creates from the heart, things just flow more easily.”
Jammer is available on all your favourite digital platforms.
