Solange Talks Writing “Cranes In The Sky” On Instagram
Solange released her third studio album A Seat At The Table last week, as well as an expansive reading supplement to go along with it. Now, Solo has taken to Instagram to talk a little bit about album standout “Cranes In The Sky” (which also just got a gorgeous visual treatment), which the singer revealed she wrote eight years ago.
“It was 8 years ago Raphael Saadiq handed me a cd with a few instrumentals. One was just drums, strings, and bass,” she says in the photo’s caption. “I went home and wrote ‘Cranes’ that night in my hotel room.”

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.
