Live cover version recorded as part of Fearne Cotton's BBC Radio 1 show today (February 24)
The US trio, sisters Danielle, Alana and Este Haim, paid a visit to BBC Radio 1 earlier today (February 24) and performed the cover version alongside a separate performance of their own song 'If I Could Change Your Mind'. 'XO' features on Beyonce's self-titled 2013 album.
Meanwhile, Haim have also revealed the video for their new single 'If I Could Change Your Mind'. The track is taken from Haim's debut album 'Days Are Gone' and dance-heavy video was directed by Warren Fu, who has previously worked with Daft Punk, The Strokes and The Killers.
Haim are among the nominees at this year's NME Awards with Austin, Texas which takes place tomorrow (February 26). Speaking about their three nominations, Haim say: "We are so excited to be nominated for this year's NME awards! This will be our first time, so please be gentle."
The band, who went to Number One in the UK Official Albums Chart with their debut album 'Days Are Gone' last year, recently said that they are now ready for "something new" this year.
They will be looking to Kanye West for inspiration, she continued. "We're always writing and figuring out new vibes and trying to get our inner Kanyes out," she said. Her sister Este added: "We're going to tap into our inner Kanye."
