The xx Reimagine Wham!'s Classic 'Last Christmas' (Audio)
Wham!’s 1984 holiday hit “Last Christmas” has been given a fresh update courtesy of UK buzz band the xx.
Featuring the trio’s signature synth-heavy drone and breathy co-ed vocals, singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim alternate verses once sung by the duo of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley while DJ/mastermind Jamie xx holds the beat.
The band debuted its version on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge on Dec. 17.
