The xx will tour North America this spring, with dates kicking off April 15 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. The tour celebrates the release of the bandÂ’s highly anticipated third album, I See You, set for release January 13 on Young Turks.
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 characterized 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.
Â“Say Something Loving,Â” the second track to be released from the album, is out now. Listen HERE. The xx also recently released their video for Â“On Hold,Â” the first single from I See You. The video was shot in Marfa, Texas, where the band wrote and recorded some of the album, and was directed by acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Alasdair McLellan. Watch the video HERE.
