Listen! The xx – Together

The xx have cooked up something new for The Great Gatsby soundtrack, curated by Jay-Z. The soundtrack has new tracks and covers by other artists such as Lana Del Rey, Outkast’s Andre 3000 and Beyonce, and Jay-Z himself. The xx’s contribution is Together.

Not only does Together fit the often one word naming convention their songs have, but it sounds like a track by The xx. It features vocal play between Oli and Romy, as well as that guitar sound, and some subtle electronic dabbling from Jamie xx. We get some cinematic strings, creating an epic sound that compliments the track, yet sounds slightly out of place at the same time. Check it out below.
