Excitement is in the air with the release of Die Heuwels Fantasties' third album, Alles Wat Mal Is. The album will be hitting the shelves at the beginning of November 2012. South Africa's leading Afrikaans alternative pop group describes this album as 'a good hybrid between the previous two albums'. Die Heuwels Fantasties and Wilder as die Wildtuin both reached Gold Status in sales.

Have a look at a little teaser from Alles wat Mal Ishere.

Die Heuwels Fantasties rented a house in Hout Bay for three months to write and record the album. Pierre Greeff en Hunter Kennedy wrote the lyrics and together with Fred den Hartog, they wrote the music. Fred did all the programming during the production phase. Afterwards they recorded violins, accordion, saxophone, and piano with some friends in Stellenbosch.

Johnny de Ridder is currently busy mixing the tracks and adding his production magic at his studio. A digital version of'Alles wat Mal is’ will be available for pre-order from www.suprashop.co.za. The single,'Beloofde Land’, will be available for free download with each order placed for the magical third album.

Their first hit off the album, the song already has the airwaves buzzing country-wide. Take a listen on SoundCloud.
