The xx’s Coexist was oftentimes a furious listen for some xx converts. True, we nominated the album as one of the other LPs you should have listened to last year–and, really, you should have–but for those who wanted more of Jamie xx’s dance glitch to peek through, Coexist became an unbearable listen.
But fear not, Coexist non-partisans. Jamie just released his “Sunset” edit, which buttresses the formerly shadowy track with a propulsive bounce and club-ready precision. The six-minute-plus cut incorporates all of the original vocals–only tacking on the beefed-up production. And it’s available now for free over at iTunes.
It’s like a glimpse of the album a few fans wish they made.
