In the summer of 2010, Mercury Prize winners (and Everything But The Girl fans) The xx asked Tracey Thorn and her long-time partner in EBTG Ben Watt to record a track from The xx’s debut album for a special compilation the band was commissioning of covers of the album’s songs by their favorite artists. Unfortunately, the project fell apart a few months later for numerous logistical reasons but not before Tracey had sung a new version of one of the album’s most beautiful songs, “Night Time.”
“Night Time” was handpicked by Tracey and features Ben guesting on guitars and backing vocals (it’s the first time the two have played together on a recording in over ten years) with the drums, programming, and mix coming courtesy of Tracey’s current production collaborator Ewan Pearson (producer of both Tracey’s recent acclaimed album Love and Its Opposite and 2007’s Out of the Woods).
The EP also includes three new versions of Love and Its Opposite's "Swimming;" Ewan Pearson's re-edit of Visionquest's 2010 remix and two new versions from Charles Webster.
