The track, from the singer’s 2011 album ‘4’ was co-written by Frank Ocean. “She is one of our favourite artists of all time,” the band wrote on their blog.
The xx are currently on tour in the US. Earlier this month, the band’s Oliver Sim joined Beyoncé’s little sister Solange onstage at her show at London’s XOYO venue to perform a cover of Nicole Wray’s 1998 single ‘Make It Hot’.
Meanwhile, The xx’s album ‘Coexist’ was recently names as the top-selling vinyl album of the year.

In May and June this year, the band will play a series of events titled Night + day, set to take place in unusual locations – including a waterfront park in Portugal, an abandoned Berlin theme park and a London’s Osterley Park & House.
