Afrikaans singer, Kurt Johan van Heerden, who we all know as Kurt Darren has reminded his fans that there’s more to his musical abilities than his language and heritage with the release of a new English song

Anybody in the music industry will tell you that crossing over languages, especially after being renowned for a specific sound for so long, is a bold move. However, if anybody had the potential to make this happen, it’s definitely Kurt who released a brand new single titled Oh My Soul.

The new single is a remixed collaboration with South African EDM giants, Pascal and Pearce, and sees Darren singing on a groovy, late-night electronic beat that has been produced to perfection.

Fans of Kurt Darren will note that he’s sung in English before, but this is the first time that he has embarked on such a unique sound

The singer spoke to The Juice to reveal that the collaboration with Pascal and Pearce was a deliberate one.

“We felt like Pascal & Pearce would be the perfect collab for a remix, they are busy with exciting new sounds and I just love where they are at right now. And they love the track.

I love experimenting with new sounds and beats. Music is really a universal language, and I felt that this one should be called Oh My Soul! because life is being so good to me at the moment, I have my health and feel true love all around me.”

One wonders if the singer’s creativity can be linked to his new, healthy routine. The singer recently revealed that he had lost over 26kg in 2018 alone and has looked like a man reborn in recent times:
