Because Solange. Because V I B E S. Because one isn’t an artist without being able to inspire others.
Since the release of her album A Seat at the Table, a plethora of musically inclined individuals have shared their love for the singer/songwriter’s chill, melodic vibe with their own renditions of “Cranes in the Sky.”
Below we’ve compiled some of the most vibe-worthy covers of “Cranes in the Sky” to get you out of that Monday, workweek funk:
Emmanuel Spencer shares that it was Solange’s harmonies that inspired his adaptation of the song, stating, “Falling in love with Solange all over again. A Seat at the Table is incredible. The harmonies in the original have been stuck in my head so I wanted to try my own version.”
Lydiajoymusic recreates the entire track, beats and instrumentals alike, in just vocals for a modern a cappella twist.
Timi Komonibo’s voice is raw and exposed in her melancholy rendition of “Cranes in the Sky.” Her harmonies, which add texture, are not for the faint of heart and are sure to give any audiophile goose bumps.
Komonibo shares, “There was a time when I totally related to this song. This odd restlessness really resonated with me.”
Tem LeMay spices up the R&B feel in his version of “Cranes in the Sky.”
“Having fun, covering Solange’s new record,” he says nonchalantly. His vocals, though, are anything but nonchalant.
This concludes your V I B E session for the day.
