Listen to Jamie xx remix The xx's "On Hold"

Young TurksThe xx's beat-maker Jamie xx has shared a remix of the English trio's song "On Hold." You can listen to the remix, and watch its accompanying nostalgia-filled video, now on YouTube.

The original "On Hold" -- the lead single from The xx's new album, I See You -- used a deceptively upbeat vibe and a sample of the 1981 Hall & Oates hit "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" to disguise the track's sad lyrics. Jamie's remix, meanwhile, cuts most of the lyrics and replaces them with a sinister beat that reflects the song's darkness.

In other The xx happenings, the band will perform on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday, September 28.

The xx will launch a North American tour in support of I See You this fall starting September 23 in San Diego.
