The xx :: "Teardrops" (Womack & Womack Cover) & 2009 North American Tour Dates :: w/ Austin date (Mohawk)


We haven't been able to stop listening to the debut album from London band The xx. It will definitely be on our favorite albums of the year list, and may even end up cracking the top 5. It really is that good! The album is currently on sale at the iTunes store and even includes a bonus cover of Aaliyah's "Hot Like Fire".

We'd like to share a track with you that's not on the album. It's a cover of the 1988 song "Teardrops" by Womack & Womack (listen to the original version here), which also appeared on Elton John's Duets album in 1993 (he sang it with K.D. Lang).
