The band will also play SXSW in Austin, Texas next year. The South Africa dates represent Crystal Castles' first with new singer Edith, who replaced Alice Glass when she left to pursue a solo career. Since Glass' departure, Crystal Castles have released two new tracks. 'Decide' features vocalist Edith Frances, prior to her reveal some fans had speculated the vocals were Ethan Kath manipulating his own voice to sound female. Crystal Castles returned earlier this year with Kath saying Glass did not contribute lyrics or vocals to some of their biggest songs. Glass subsequently hit back at Kath, sending a series of tweets defending herself and her contribution to Crystal Castles music. In one of the messages she wrote: "Manipulative statements about my contributions to the band only reinforce the decision I made to move on to other things." Crystal Castles formed in Toronto in 2004 and went on to release three studio LPs – 2008's '(i)', 2010's '(ii) and 2012's '(iii)'. During their career, the band worked with Cure frontman Robert Smith on 2010 single 'Not In Love' and also took part in the NME Awards Tour in 2011 alongside Magnetic Man, The Vaccines and Everything Everything. Their last show together was on October 4, 2013 in Mexico. RIP Crystal Castles: The Duo's Deranged Career In 15 Thrilling Photos

K’naan - Wavin' Flag (feat. David Guetta & Will.I.Am) lyrics

When i get older, they'll call me freedom
Just like a Waving Flag.

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
but Violent prone, poor people zone,
But it's my home, all I have known,
Where I got grown, streets we would roam.
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest,
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Except no defeat, surrender retreat,

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we'll be free,
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day,
It's not far away, so for now we say


So many wars, settling scores,
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor,
I heard them say, love is the way,
Love is the answer, that's what they say,
But look how they treat us, Make us believers,
We fight their battles, then they deceive us,
Try to control us, they couldn't hold us,
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers.

But we struggling, fighting to eat,
And we wondering, when we'll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day,
It's not far away, but for now we say,

[Chorus] 2x

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

[Chorus] 2x

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag
