The pair joined forces for the final performance of the night’s episode: a powerful version of Ye’s ‘All Of The Lights’. The original appeared on West’s critically acclaimed album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ in 2010, with a long list of featured artists including Rihanna and Kid Cudi.
For the cover, Stone works her magic on topline duties with Kwame reinventing the verses. Here, the rapper shouts out late rappers Mac Miller and DMX, along with bringing attention to the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-Asian hate.
Watch the performance below:
The Set has previously featured collaborations from Ruel and Jarryd James, Miiesha and Lime Cordiale, Eves Karydas, Ziggy Ramo and Paul Kelly, Genesis Owusu and The Chats, Missy Higgins and Birdz, Hiatus Kaiyote and Emma Donovan and You Am I and Fanny Lumsden.
Last month, Julia Stone released her third solo album ‘Sixty Summers‘ – nine years after the last. NME Australia labelled the collection “an imperfect, joyful art-pop reinvention”, praising it for being “some of the most interesting music she’s ever made – with or without Angus.”
‘Sixty Summers’ was also named in the top 15 best Australian albums of the year, so far list, curated by NME Australia. Read the full list here.
