Watch Ibeyi cover Jay Electronica’s ‘Better In Tune With The Infinite’

French-Cuban sisters are releasing a debut album on XL next year.

Late last month, French-Cuban sisters Ibeyi played one of their very first UK live appearances with a set at Rough Trade West. The twins went behind the counter, beyond the vinyl shelves to perform a handful of songs, and their set closed with an eerie cover of ‘Better In Tune With The Infinite’ by Jay Electronica.

Now a live recording has emerged of the track being played at Residence La Revolution, all booming piano notes and inventive percussion. The original song is taken from Jay’s ‘Act II: Patents of Nobility (the Turn)’ album.

Ibeyi’s previous output has included ‘River’, ‘Oya’ and ‘Mama Says’, with a Richard Russell-produced debut album slated for an early 2015 release on XL Recordings.

Watch Ibeyi’s Jay Electronica cover below.
