Common has remixed Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky,” which is the rapper’s favorite track off her new album, A Seat at the Table. “Every once and a few years, there are certain songs that come out and have the sound of forever. ‘Cranes in the Sky’ is that song for me,” Common told The Fader. “Every time I listened to it, I keep wanting to hear it again and again. I started mumbling some words to it and then decided I want to write a verse. This is an unofficial remix simply inspired by the love of art.” Listen to the remix below.
