French Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi (Naomi Díaz and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz) have announced a new album, Ash, and shared a video for a new song, “Deathless,” which features Kamasi Washington on saxophone. Ash is due out September 29 via XL. Below is the strange “Deathless” video, which was directed by Ed Morris and features the sisters continually crawling out of each other’s dresses. Also below are the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates.

Lisa-Kaindé says “Deathless” was inspired by her being wrongly arrested by French police when she was 16. She had this to say about the song in a press release: “I was writing ‘Deathless’ as an anthem for everybody! For every minority. For everybody that feels that they are nothing, that feels small, that feels not cared about and I want them to listen to our song and for three minutes feel large, powerful, deathless. I have a huge amount of respect for people who fought for, what I think, are my rights today and if we all sing together ‘we are deathless,’ they will be living through us into a better world.”

The album also features Mala Rodriguez, Chilly Gonzales, and Meshell Ndegeocello. Ash also includes “Away Away,” which was released back in June and is also below. The album is the follow-up to 2015’s self-titled debut.
