Back in November, Ibeyi released ‘Made Of Gold’ featuring Pa Salieu.

Speaking about that track the pair said: “The first song we produced in the studio was ‘Made of Gold’. Whilst we were creating the layers of the backing vocals, we could feel that we were making contact with our ancestors; 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.”
