“imma start covering some tunes that are saving me during lockdown,” Parks wrote on Twitter. “The xx’s first album has this specific sense of sweetness and simple romance. VCR is one of my favourite songs atm it makes me feel free somehow.”

A ‘best of’ compilation CD of the artist’s lo-fi cover series – which can also be found on YouTube – will be featured exclusively alongside merch bundles for the album.
