The xx – “Finally” (Kings Of Tomorrow Cover)

Finally” is a gospel-inflected house anthem from the New York producer Kings Of Tomorrow; it was a minor hit in the UK in 2000. The xx, who continue to have excellent taste in covers, tried the song out on a live BBC Radio session yesterday, effectively translating the original’s steamroller of feeling into something tense and small and intimate while keeping some of its dancefloor pulse intact. The xx cover is absolutely lovely, and you can hear it below.

The xx’s weirdly underrated sophomore album Coexist is out now on Young Turks.
