Hear a New Track from The xx
- Words: Tim Gentles
The xx's exclusive contribution to the Jay-Z-curated soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann's upcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby hit the web today. Called "Together," the song is a moody, slow-burning duet that, like the best of The xx's material, strikes a perfect balance between tension and pay-off, thanks in part to a string-filled crescendo arriving in the later half of the track. "Together" can be streamed in the player below.
