Everyone dying to hear the XX's "Islands" performed live in South Florida this fall can likely get their wish by attending one of Shakira's two concerts in the area: September 25 at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, and September 27 at American Airlines Arena in Miami.
You see, as several folks tipped last week, Shakira has recorded a cover of "Islands," track 4 on the XX's self-titled debut, and retitled it "Explore." Listen to some fragments here.
Tickets for both concerts go on sale this Friday. In the spirit of fair cover exchange, Hot Chip's cover of Shakira's "She Wolf" is below. Awooooo!
