French Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi (Naomi Díaz and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz) are releasing a new album, Ash, tomorrow (September 29) via XL. Previously they shared a surreal video for “Deathless” (a song that features Kamasi Washington on saxophone), as well as a video for “Me Voy” (the duo’s first song entirely in Spanish, it featured two-time Latin Grammy winning rapper Mala Rodriguez). Now they have shared a video for another new song, “I Wanna Be Like You,” which features them as each other’s opposite. Remi Besse directed the video, which was shot in France. Watch it below, followed by their upcoming tour dates.

Lisa-Kaindé had this to say about the song in a press release: “Sometimes I want to be like Naomi. I want her eyes, to feel the rhythm as deeply as she does, to dance like her, to be as wild as she is; sometimes I just want to be her for even a few seconds.”

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