Solange breaks down Cranes In The Sky

Solange's Cranes In The Sky was my favourite single of 2016, so it's fascinating to find out how it was created.

That's exactly what you get in the latest episode of Hrishikesh Hirway's Song Exploder: A podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Solange explains how the basic track was first recorded in 2012 - but, by the time she'd finished the lyrics and melody, the original computer files had been lost. She also delves into the mental struggles depicted in the song... and you get to hear some of those gorgeous, honey-brushed vocals in isolation.
