Wandile created an acoustic version of ‘First Night’ as a stripped-down rendition of the single which he recorded, mixed and mastered during lockdown level 5. “I was trying to go back and celebrate the song in a much more organic way. The acoustic version is special because it’s my interpretation of the song, stripped down in the singer-songwriter style. I haven’t done this in a while so I was very excited to do so. It is always important for me to stretch and see if I can translate the song in many different ways.”
The original version of ‘First Night’ was created and recorded ahead of the current coronavirus pandemic hitting SA shores with a national lockdown sending the public to their homes. Wandile has used his time to create more music.
