Florence + The Machine "You Got the Love (The xx Remix) (The Very Best Version)"
- Words: Thomas Rees
Get ready to surf over to Discogs, because this track is The Very Best's African pop take on The xx's shuffling remix of Florence + the Machine's cover of The Source and Candi Staton's 1986 disco-gospel hit. Luckily, the increased distance from the original doesn't diminish the quality of this fine reworking, which leaves The xx's interpretation intact while adding African vocal harmonies, sweaty tropical percussive elements, and a healthy amount of delay. Candi Staton should be proud.
