If you weren’t already feeling the romance this Valentine’s Day, The xx have gone and covered Beyonce’s emotional “I Miss You.” Ugh, can my heart just get a minute to breathe today! The soulful ballad (which was co-written by Frank Ocean) gets the band’s standard treatment, as their rendition features sparse instrumental accompaniment while Romy and Oliver trade whispered lines back and forth. In a note on their website, the xx wrote “She is one of our favourite artists of all time, Beyonce. This song has always meant a lot to us and was written with another artist we really admire, Frank Ocean.” Enjoy the moving performance above.
