Shakira Covers The XX

Hot Chip did that cover of Shakira’s “She Wolf.” Now the Colombian warbler’s dipped filtering the work of some British folks with keyboards through her distinctive post-Alanis sound. Instead of returning Hot Chip’s favor and giving us “One Life Stand,” though, she’s offered up a take on The xx’s “Islands” (heard here in a one minute excerpt) and called it “Explore.” XXX

It’s unclear where this will appear.
