Ibeyi return with ‘Made of Gold’ featuring Pa Salieu

The duo’s third album is expected to be released next year.

Ibeyi have shared new track ‘Made of Gold’, which features October cover star, Pa Salieu.

The new material follows 2017’s ‘Ash’, and was the first song the pair - twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz - wrote when starting work on a third album, expected to be released in 2022.

“Whilst we were creating the layers of the backing vocals, we could feel that we were making contact with our ancestors,” explains Lisa-Kaindé, “that what we were recording was calling on the brujas and our ancestors for their ancient knowledge. “Made of Gold” is about connecting to our ancestors’ knowledge, to the truths of the past and the power of the ancient. The line is not broken, nor is it lost. Protected by these spells, our third album will see us conveying our reconnection to that power and channeling that magic into our new music.”
