Ibeyi Release New Single 'Deathless' Ft Kamasi Washington (+ Video)

Friday 1st September, 2017 11:09AM

French-Cuban sister-duo Ibeyi have shared a new tune titled ‘Deathless’ featuring the incomparable saxophone virtuoso Kamasi Washington. The tune is built on a foundation of deep drums, plastered in the rich vocal harmonies of the pair and decorated with smatterings of Washington’s signature brass licks.

‘Deathless’ follows lead single 'Away Away' and is plucked from Ash, the upcoming second album from Ibeyi - which is pronounced "eye-bay-eye" and fittingly translates from the Nigerian dialect Yoruba as "twins". The tune is accompanied by a video produced by Rattling Stick and directed by Ed Morris. On the lyrical content of the song, band member Lisa-Kainde Diaz had the following to say:


“I was writing Deathless as an anthem for everybody! For every minority, for everybody that feels they are nothing, that feels small, that feels not cared about and I want them to listen to our song and for three minutes feel large and powerful, deathless. I have a huge amount of respect for people who fought for, what I think, are my rights today and if we all sing together ‘we are deathless’, they will be living through us into a better world.”

Ash is out 29th September on XL and Rhythmethod.
