English indie band, The xx, recently released a deluxe version of their critically acclaimed album I See You. The was released digitally and included two new tracks, “Naive,” (sampling Drake’s “Doing It Wrong” from his 2011 album Take Care)and “Seasons Run.” An acoustic version of “Brave For You (Marfa Demo)” is also included in the deluxe version and the xx have also released a music video for the song as well, which you can watch below.
The new video starts with Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim performing the song with just a guitar against a stucco wall before revealing the entire band, including Jamie xx. The acoustic version of “Brave For You” has a considerably shorter run time than the original and has a more organic and raw quality to the vocals without the synths and drums from the original version. It was announced earlier this month that Perfume Genius will be joining The xx on a handful of their North American tour dates.
