The xx release new song ‘Say Something Loving’

The xx have today 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, stream below), ‘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 now HERE
 
Released on 13th January via Young Turks, I See You is set to be the first major album release of 2017. 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 (in recent reviews, Uncut described The xx as “the most influential band of the last decade” while The Telegraph stated that they are “the sound of the decade”). I See You marks a new era for 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 announced a series of shows for their 2017 I See You Tour. These dates include a record-breaking run of seven sold out shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton between 8th-15th March, performing to 35,000 people over seven hometown shows. Tickets for all shows are on general sale now here.
