Rob Dekay about new album: ‘Finally in the Eredivisie, there is no playing’

Rob Dekay introduces himself with his new album Aangenaam to everyone who was not yet familiar with his music, but is familiar with him. At the beginning of this year the musician turned out to be the mole in Wie is de Mol? and hopes people will now get to know him better.

That the album will be released at a time when he cannot play it live in front of an audience is sour, he says in conversation with NU.nl. “You can finally play in the Eredivisie, it will not be played. But I am ready and remain optimistic.”

“It also feels a bit like a circle: the big moment that it came out that I was the mole, all doors of the catering industry closed because of corona. Now my album is coming out and we are in the same situation again,” said the 33-year-old singer. .

“Of course my lead sometimes drops. I worked really hard for this and we were just performing again. That gives you so much energy, standing in front of people. Anyway, now I notice how you can use social media. can also have very nice contact with enthusiasts. ”

Personal stories in music

The new album is completely his own work and in the songs he sings about himself and the things he goes through. For example, in Aangenaam he refers to his twin brother, with whom he has a special bond. And in Laat Los, he sings about the recent break with his girlfriend.

A personal text is initially like a diary, but because Dekay also shares these thoughts with a large audience, he thinks it is important to first let it be heard by the people he sings about.

“It wasn’t that difficult with my brother, but yes, in other cases it was. Then I’ll let you know, even if it is complicated. And I think you know: if you are with an artist or an artist. you know that you can be the inspiration for work. Three out of four times that is great fun and the one time it is painful. ”

Collaborations with Lohues and Meeuwis

Although Dekay thought it was important to do as much as possible himself for this album, he also works with artists to whom he has enjoyed listening to for years. Daniël Lohues, Guus Meeuwis and Diggy Dex collaborated and Ilse DeLange can even be heard on Je do not have to do it alone.

Many of those collaborations and songs came about when the artists were still busy performing. “So that Ilse was able to make time for me in her busy schedule is very special. That she does the second voice there is very cool. It’s so true in that song.”

You don’t hear duets or other voices on the album and that has a reason: Dekay really wanted to do this album himself and already has an idea for a next album. “Then I want everything to be a collaboration, then I can show a completely different side of myself.”
