As the release of XO's forthcoming EP The Ethereal Experience draws nearer, the producer, DJ and part-time singer unveils 'U & I' featuring additional vocals from Shay Lia.

While lyrically the track is a back and forth between two exes, XO's funk-filled productions ensures it's not a totally sombre affair. Montreal-based singer/songwriter Shay Lia (who has previously collaborated with Kaytranada) plays the opposite party and adds a sweet flavour to an otherwise bitter situation. Speaking to The FADER, XO said "The song essentially demonstrates that we're only human and our desire for someone of the past isn't something we should be embarrassed by or ashamed of."

The Ethereal Experience will be released on July 20 and is available to pre-order on iTunes.
