Is it just me seeing this, or is this The Great Gatsby Soundtrack going full bore? I mean, they’ve secured Jay-Z’s curative and recording efforts, Andre 3000 x Beyonce, Jack White, Gotye, Lana Del Rey and now we get to hear the track from The xx.
“Together” almost makes me wish I hadn’t written about my Record Store Day purchase yet so I could lump this “together” with the other tracks from the Jamie xx edit 12″. When new tracks from The xx drop, it’s usually a frenzy and this is no exception. There’s already roughly 24,000 plays on this track in less than a day worth of time available, and that’s only the Soundcloud stream. I don’t know if it’s available elsewhere, but I’m assuming it is so that number is even higher.
This is signature The xx as I know them; I’ve always been a somewhat casual observer/fan, however this track goes well with me much like “Angels” did when it first popped up last summer. I’m always more about the vox than the atmosphere, though. Atypical, I suppose. Those strings near the end are pretty sweet, however.
