The xx Share Second Song from I See You

the xx

Too early to predict this as album of the year?


The xx have shared the new song, “Say Something Loving,” from their forthcoming third album, I See You, which arrives next week (January 13th) via Young Turks. Listen to the song below.

I can’t help but feel that Jamie xx is carrying over some of his excellent work on In Colour to this new album, as “Say Something Loving” and “On Hold” have dropped the minimalist style of their past work in favor of an expansive, breathtaking sound.
