broeder Dieleman - De Eerste Knecht (Digital Single)
'De Eerste Knecht’ is the first single following the release of his second split 7’’ with Bonnie Prince Billy from 2021. The song is part of a two-piece, the second part will be released later this year.
The song finds its origin in the recordings for ‘De Liefde is de Eerste Wet’ and a Leo Bootsgezel story ‘als de lente komt’ from 1923. Dieleman explains: “The first servant was the second highest in the ranks of a farm after the farmer himself. He slept in the barn and was in charge of the horses and the rest of the servants. The song is part of a two-piece and together forms a musical postcard about the life on a farm in West Zeeuws Flanders, early 20th century.”
Released: June 24th, 2022
