Wilhelmus (Dutch National Anthem)

2013 saw the coronation of the new Dutch King Willem Alexander. A nationwide radio station asked Will to record a version of the Dutch national anthem “Wilhelmus” in the same vein as Brian May’s famous rendition of the English national anthem, “God Save the Queen”. Will (who happened to be named after the Dutch national anthem) gladly obliged and this recording remains Will’s most aired recording to date, also because other (nationwide) radio stations picked up on it and used the recording as a jingle as well.
