Cranes in the Sky (Kaytranada Remix)
“Cranes in the Sky,” taken from Solange’s mesmerizing self-portrait of an album, A Seat at the Table, is a deeply personal track. With a spare drumbeat and mournful lyrics, it isn’t the sort of song that warrants a remix. Haitian-Canadian DJ Kaytranada, however, has released a reworking of the track that’s both delicate and groovy, picking up the tempo without sacrificing the fragility of the original. Kaytra’s explanation? “I couldn’t help it, and I can’t deny how good it sounds.” We can’t deny it either. Listen below.
