It’s official. The xx have returned.
After a bit of studio track teasing last month, The xx have finally announced the release of their third studio album, ‘I See You.’ The LP marks a return for the band following 2012’s widely acclaimed Coexist. To promote the album, they’ve also just dropped the first single in, ‘On Hold’, a sonic departure that samples Hall & Oates’ melodic ’80s pop hit ‘I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)’. The album is set to follow next.
The LP will be released on January 13, 2017 in; digital, vinyl and also box set. The group will also begin touring in support of the record starting this month — they will be both performing live and discussing the record on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show tonight at 7PM GMT.
