André Hazes, together with Dutch blues singer Phil Bee, released an English-language blues song for the first time: Need Your Love So Bad . That is very different from the singer is used to, but he was not worried about the language, he tells AD on Saturday .

"I've been coming to America for 25 years, so I have mastered that language quite well. I knew I wouldn't sound like a farmer," said the 26-year-old singer. The new genre for him, on the other hand, was something that Hazes found more exciting to do. "You are standing next to a man who does all his life (bee, red.) That makes it exciting That's just like him say.." Now once again Live . "That's all different." Do

Bee was one of the participants in the television program We Want More, where Hazes was a jury member. Where Hazes had to provide the musician with feedback during the program, the roles in the studio when recording Need Your Love So Bad were reversed, according to Hazes.

"He had to blow my ass if I got it wrong"

"I also went to him and said I hate comment. But I had never sung English in my life," said Hazes. "I had never done a song like this before. So he had to blow my ass all day if I did something wrong." That worked out well, according to the singer. "He helped and guided me very well."

Singing outside his genre has pleased the singer and he would like to continue his plans to make a rock album. Although he is not yet sure whether he wants to do that in Dutch or in English, he still leans towards English. "You should listen to American rock records. When you translate that into Dutch, you sometimes think: Jesus, what is this childish. So chances are it will be in English."
