The xx "Sunset" (Jamie XX edit)
Published Jan 03, 2013Following the release of 2012's excellent Coexist, the XX have let production whiz Jamie xx have his way with single "Sunset," which was just released as part of a free iTunes single called The xxmas.
Expanding the track to include a lengthy, amped-up intro, this is an ice-cold disco rendition of the band's original. Anyone complaining that they were too subdued on their recent compositions will find plenty to latch onto here.
Over here, you can download the free EP, which also includes a video for "Angels" (live in Tokyo) and Coexist track "Chained," for the next 72 hours on iTunes.
