This week, The xx announced the details of their new album, and unveiled heir On Hold single- much to the delight of their fans.

Now the track - which features a sample from Hall & Oates' 1981 hit  I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) - has been discussed by one half of the musical duo themselves.

“It’s always interesting to hear what somebody does with my songs,” Daryl Hall told Genius

“After a song is written, it belongs to the world and can be interpreted anyway they want. As long as I get paid, of course. Have fun and pay me.”
