Listening to The xx’s new album, I See You, for me there was one clear standout: ‘Lips’. The strength of a sample can take you very far and the use of ‘Just’ by David Lang (which I remember from the soundtrack to Youth) is pretty inspired. Combining haunting choral vocals with a hip-hop breathes new life into the original while creating something entirely new.
