After the past couple days like these, it’s hard not to interpret another layer of meaning from the xx’s new single, “On Hold.” But it feels good listening to these lyrics and Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim’s tender vocals.
Today, the xx released the first full song from their upcoming album, I See You. Sampling Hall and Oates’ 1981 tune “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” this new single is excellent comeback for the xx. Listen to it below.
I See You will be the xx’s third album and first since Coexist in 2012. Check out the track list below.
I See You will be released on January 13, 2017.
