The xx ended their Night + Day residency at London’s O2 Academy Brixton last night with another surprise collaboration, with Florence and the Machine‘s Florence Welch.

Welch joined the band on stage to perform The xx’s remix of her cover of ‘You Got The Love’. You can watch it below

Earlier in the band’s 7-day tour, they had Robyn on stage for a cover of ‘With Every Heartbeat’. Savages’ singer Jehnny Beth also joined them on stage, for a rendition of the band’s 2009 song ‘Infinity’.

The band hand-picked the line-up for each of their seven Brixton shows, with support from Sampha, Cat Power, Robyn, Jehnny Beth, Joy Orbison and more.

 

 

The trio started their ‘Night + Day’ series back in 2013 with a run of gigs in Lisbon, Berlin and London. Now, in support of their new album ‘I See You‘, they’ve done the same with seven London shows.

After completing their ‘Night + Day’ residency in London last night, the band will head to Cardiff to perform at the Motorpoint Arena tomorrow evening (March 17).
