Have you heard this one? Mark Lanegan, Warpaint, and Martina Topley-Bird walk into a bar. The bartender asks them what their favorite song is by The xx. They respond with a cover of “c”, turning the xx classic into a trip-hop love letter dipped in whiskey and dried by the moonlight.
The powerhouse of a cover is the latest release by No.19 Music, under the Art Department Presents banner, which will also include a number of remixes. To further bring it to life, director Javier Badet and Los Angeles’ 1/60 Studio pieced together a fitting animated video highlighting the duet between Lanegan and Topley-Bird. Watch it below.
In related news, Consequence of Sound recently caught The xx’s sold out performance at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Full review and photo gallery here.
