The xx – “On Hold (Godmode ‘Have Fun And Pay Me’ Remix)”

The xx finally officially announced their new album, I See You, after adding some sneaky snippets of new music to their “In The Studio” playlist.

They’ve also given us the lead single “On Hold.” The song samples Hall & Oates, which caught the attention of Daryl Hall. He had this to say about the song and how the trio reimagined his music:

It’s always interesting to hear what somebody does with my songs. After a song is written, it belongs to the world and can be interpreted anyway they want. As long as I get paid, of course. Have fun and pay me.

Nick Sylvester, producer and founder of Godmode Records, has given “On Hold” the dance remix treatment and named it after the last part of Hall’s quote. The “Have Fun And Pay Me” remix adds plenty of bounce and rhythmic dance vibes to the original. Check it out below.

I See You is out 1/13 via XL.
