BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge has shared a clip of The xx performing a cover of Justin Timberlake's 2006 classic "My Love." The London group's version features their trademark slinky bassplay and airy guitar, as well as pitched-up samples courtesy of Jamie xx. Aspects of Timbaland's admittedly essential production are retained, too. At one point, the song integrates aspects of "LoveStoned / I Think She Knows," another song from Timberlake's album FutureSex / LoveSounds.
