It’s been 4 months since Solange’s A Seat At The Table dropped, blessing us with intimate confessionals in R&B perfection. With songs like Don’t Touch My Hair, Weary, Borderline and F.U.B.U. to name a few, the album resonates a candid honesty that’s both personal and beautifully ethereal. Her single Cranes In The Sky was honestly one of the best if not the best drop of 2016.
But you already knew that.
As if Cranes In The Sky couldn’t get any better, Kaytranada gave Cranes another life by releasing an uptempo, house remix. What was originally meant to play exclusively in his sets, the DJ decided to share it with us all because of how well it was received. Here’s what he said on soundcloud in full:
“I couldn’t help it and i can’t deny how good it sounds. this is just an edit to play on my dj sets, and i played it once and everybody wanted it right away. Honestly i was gonna wait to see if Solange or her team or whoever works for her wouldve ask me to do an offical remix so if they still want to, i could make it sound better than that version but ohhhhh, what the hell….
anyways i highly recommend you that new Solange album “A Seat At The Table”.”
