We’re just three days into 2017, and things are already looking up. At least for fans of The xx, that is. The London trio just released “Say Something Loving”, the third single off their forthcoming LP I See You, out Jan 13.
For the glimmering new single, producer Jamie xx samples the Alessi Brothers’ 1978 hit “Do You Feel It?” alongside Oliver Sim and Romy Croft’s signature breathy harmonies. To the surprise of no one, the result is a shimmering beauty.
It’s been a long time coming. After a nearly five-year hiatus, the former schoolmates released “On Hold” in November followed up with “I Dare You.” But this time around, the group teased their newest release by tweeting a short video of Sim and Croft singing the track in a Tokyo karaoke bar. Have a listen to the track in full below.
