Solange took to Instagram not long ago to share her story of how “Cranes In The Sky came about.
“@saintrecords: Timing. I wrote “Cranes in The Sky” 8 years ago
It was 8 years ago @raphael_saadiq handed me a cd with a few instrumentals. One was just drums, strings, and bass. I went home and wrote “Cranes” that night in my hotel room.
When I finished writing and creating #aseatatthetable in a little house in New Iberia, Louisiana…..I revisited “Cranes” once again. I called Raphael that night and asked if he would help me to elevate the production on a few of the other songs of the album to see their fullest potential. I am so happy 8 years later Cranes is finally out in the world.”
This song is a favorite of many right now, but don’t sleep on the album. No one should be complaining about good music right now. We have it on repeat now!
