Werner Bekker is fast making a name for himself as one of the freshest new singer/songwriters on the block. After a string of impressive singles, the star is back with another emotional track titled ‘Withdrawl’.

Withdrawal is an extremely personal song with beautifully scripted lyrics which takes its listeners on a narrative journey as well as a sonic one.

Werner explains, “Withdrawal explores the emotions one feels when dealing with giving up on ones vice. Whether this is smoking, drinking, eating or whatever you do to take the edge off. When we lose this coping mechanism we tend to take our frustration out on the ones we love. We over-analyse every situation because we are left to deal with our very raw emotions without having a numbing agent to lighten the blows.”

Fans will be able to watch Werner perform the new single as he opens for legendary pop act a-ha when they perform in Mzansi next month. One thing is for sure, Werner has proven that he offers something different – and people can’t help but listen.
