Watch Ibeyi cover Jay Electronica's "Better In Tune With The Infinite" and catch them on their fall tour.
XL Recordings' new French-Cuban duo Ibeyi follow their recent soul-wrenching single "Mama Says" with an acoustic cover of Jay Electronica’s "Better In Tune With The Infinite." Their soulful interpretation, a one-take live recording that took place during their debut album's recording sessions, displays the Yoruba doom soul sisters' now distinctive sonic palette — a sublime combination of piano, voice, cajón and batas. The Paris-based twins have also just announced a series of live tour dates in October and November, which will include a batch of European show and Ibeyi’s first trip to the U.S., with performances scheduled in New York City on November 18 and Los Angeles on November 20. Watch Ibeyi's live cover of Jay Electronica and see their full fall tour dates below.
