Watch The xx Cover Beyoncé's "I Miss You" for Valentine's Day

For Valentine’s Day, The xx have released footage of a special cover performance of Beyoncé’s “I Miss You” on Thursday, according to Pitchfork.

The original version was already set at a pretty slow tempo for the R&B singer but leave it to The xx to break the song down to a simple, deconstructed sound that highlights the sullen, almost lonely tone of the lyrics.

When announcing the release of the cover, The xx expressed their admiration for Beyoncé and the co-author of “I Miss You,” Frank Ocean.

The xx are currently on tour and are now in Texas.

You can watch the video of The xx’s cover performance of “I Miss You,” below.
