Tracey Thorn -- Night Time (The xx Cover) by Merge Records

Tracey Thorn reunites with longtime collaborator Ben Watt for a cover of The XX's Night Time.
Thorn + Watt formed Everything But The Girl in the early 80′s and enjoyed a string of successful hits (our favorite being Missing of course) before moving on to their own projects. This is the duo's first collaboration in 10 years. The super talented Ewan Pearson was brought in to program/mix/play drums on the track.
Night Time will be released on November 1 through Merge, and includes remixes of Thorn's track Swimming by Visionquest and Charles Webster from her latest album Love & It's Opposite. Tell us what you think in the comments!

Night time

You mean that much to me
And it's hard to show oh oh oh
Gets hectic inside of me
When you go oh oh oh
Can I confess these things
To you?
Well I don't know oh oh oh
Embedded in my chest
And it
Hurts to hold oh oh

I couldn't spill my heart
My eyes gleam looking in from the dark
I walk out in stormy weather
Hold my words, keep us together
Steady walking but bound to trip
Should release but she tightens my grip

Night time
Sympathize
I've been working on
White lies
So I'll tell the truth
I'll give it up to you
And when the day comes
It will have all been fun
We'll talk about it soon

and I couldn't spill my heart
My eyes gleam
Looking in from the dark
I walk out in stormy weather
Hope my words keep us together
Steady walking but bound to trip
Should release but she tightens my grip

Night time
Sympathize
I've been working on
White lies
So I'll tell the truth
I'll give it up to you
And when the day comes
It will have all been fun
We'll talk about it soon

In the summer of 2010 Mercury Music Prize winners (and Everything But The Girl fans) The xx asked Tracey Thorn and her long-time partner in EBTG Ben Watt (also Strange Feeling label boss) to record a track from the The xx's debut album for a special compilation the band were commissioning of covers of the album's songs by their favourite artists. Unfortunately the project fell apart a few months later for numerous logistical reasons (not least the second wind breathed into the original album by the Mercury Prize victory) but not before Tracey had sung a new version of one the album most beautiful tracks, 'Night Time'.

The track gathered dust for a few months but it is rightfully seeing the light of day on a new EP from Tracey Thorn called the 'Night Time EP', released on Strange Feeling on October 31, much to the delight of all concerned.

'Night Time' was handpicked by Tracey and features Ben guesting on guitars and backing vocals (it is the first time the two have played together on a recording for over ten years) with the drums, programming and mix coming courtesy of Tracey's current production collaborator Ewan Pearson (producer of both Tracey's recent acclaimed album 'Love And Its Opposite' and 2007's 'Out Of The Woods'). As Tracey re-articulates Romy's lyrics, Ben fluidly arpeggiates the original interwoven guitar lines into one seamless pass, while Ewan adds crisp fresh half-tempo drums, atmospheric misty synths and booming bass.

On the flip side, one of 'Love And Its Opposite''s most popular tracks 'Swimming' is revisited. Ewan buffs up and re-edits last year's remix by (then emerging and now) current dance producers-du-jour, Visionquest (Detroit's Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss) into a new version, with judicious new drum parts and a sparkling widescreen mix-down. Expect serious autumn club action.

Meanwhile, UK underground house legend Charles Webster adds his magic to 'Swimming' too, with a beautifully percussive main mix and a rainy, autumnal dub.
