The XX - Last Christmas Live Lounge

The xx hit up Radio 1 to perform a cover and in a break of character they've decided to go for everyone's Auntie's favourite - Wham's 'Last Christmas'. Of course, this is isn't a straight cover so don't expect Romy and co to be getting their 80's pop vibes out and instead, they masterfully re-imagine the track putting it through their own ever so distinctive filter and end up with a even more mournful and considered version of George Michael's tale of xmas heartbreak. You'll like it far more than you may have expected. Listen to the The xx cover 'Last Christmas' below.
