Video: Gorillaz cover the xx

In a recent session for the BBC, Damon Albarn and a subset of Gorillaz recorded three low-key live tracks including this cover of ‘Crystalised’ by the xx. The result is quite remarkable, it’s still the same poignant piece but Albarn seems to add an extra slice of magic.

In the same session they recorded ‘Doncamatic’ with Daley and radio-hit ‘Up On Melancholy Hill’, also below.
