It's the collaboration you never knew you needed.
For about five magical minutes during their Friday stint at London's O2 Academy Brixton (part of their week-long residency), Robyn joined The xx for a special live collaboration of her famed 2007 mega-hit, "With Every Heartbeat."
During the group's rendition of "Sheltered," which is off their self-titled debut LP, Oliver Sims invited the pop star onstage and proceeded to transition into her Kleerup-produced smash. With Robyn leading the pack, Romy Croft and Sims chimed in for occasional trailing vocals as Jamie xx worked his magic on the production front. Their show was part of the "Night + Day Festival," which ends this evening.
Robyn previously opened up for the indie pop duo a day before her surprise appearance. She's part of the lengthy list of acts supporting the British pair during their residency at the venue. Amongst the other acts include Mr. Tophat, Sampha, Kelele, Cat Power and Mica Levi. If you want to see The xx in the flesh, make sure you snag tickets to their tour, which is set to kick off a North American leg in mid-April with week one and two of Coachella.
