Ibeyi Premiere Video For “Ghosts”

Ibeyi Premiere Video For their "Ghosts" from their forthcoming release 'Ibeyi,'

Today, Ibeyi share the video to new track ‘Ghosts’, the third single to be released from their forthcoming album Ibeyi (release on 17th February on XL Recordings). The emotionally weighted video was once again directed by Ed Morris, who the girls recently collaborated with on videos for both the River and Mama Says. You can watch it below.

Earlier this year Ibeyi revealed details of their self titled debut album. Produced by Richard Russell at his west London Residence La Revolution studio and will be released on 17th February 2015 on XL Recordings. The album cover artwork features a photograph of the twins taken in 2014 as well as an alternative, interchangeable cover featuring a photograph of them as children.

Ibeyi are 20 year old French Cuban twins, Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz. They are daughters of the late Cuban percussion Anga Diaz. Naomi plays percussive instruments, the Cajon and the Batas, while Lisa plays piano. Together the twins combine modern pop, hip-hop and electronic influences with the traditional sounds of their father’s Yorùbán culture.

Meanwhile, having recently made their debut UK live appearance with a sold out show at London’s Courtyard Theatre, Ibeyi will continue to play live throughout 2015, embarking on their most extensive tour yet. They have already been confirmed to appear at this year’s EuroSonic and SXSW festivals.
