The xx have released a new song from their forthcoming album, I See You. Following the global success of lead single ‘On Hold’ (and its accompanying Alasdair McLellan directed video), ‘Say Something Loving’ is the second song to be revealed from the London trio’s highly-anticipated third album and is available to download / stream here.
The xx’s new album I See You will be released on Friday 13 January 2017 via Young Turks / Remote Control. It is the follow up to The xx’s two previous albums – xx and Coexist – which have sold over 3 million copies between them, winning a host of accolades along the way.
I See You marks a new era for the London trio of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith, both sonically and in terms of process. For while xx and Coexist were both made in relative isolation in London, I See You was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London, and is characterised by a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach. Produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald, I See You is The xx at their boldest yet, performing with more clarity and ambition than ever before.
Meanwhile, The xx have set the record for the longest ever run of sold out shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The trio will take over the legendary venue from 8th-15th March, performing to 35,000 people over seven hometown shows.
