Watch Julia Stone and Kwame team up to cover Kanye West’s ‘All Of The Lights’

Paying homage to Mac Miller and DMX

Julia Stone and Kwame are the latest artists to take to the stage of ABC’s The Set, teaming up for a cover of a Kanye West classic.

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.

‘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.
