Martina Topley-Bird has joined Mark Lanegan and Warpaint to release this cover for the xx’s “Crystalised.” You’ll remember Topley-Bird for vital vocal contributions to Tricky’s Maxinquaye. It’s a fitting cover because you could argue that if there wasn’t a Maxinquaye there may not have been an xx. Lanegan provides some smoky vocals as well, but I think all would agree that Topley-Bird is the star of this show. Watch the video below.
The “Crystalised” cover is out this week on No. 19 Music.
