Jamie xx confirms new The xx album is "coming", details solo LP

27 October 2014, 16:39 | Written by Laurence Day

Jamie xx has confirmed that the new xx record is "coming" and detailed his own solo full-length in an interview with The FADER.

Anyone with a fondness for the xx-esque sparse guitars and softly-softly production should take note:

"We've got quite a lot of songs that are not finished, but I'm excited about it... it feels a lot more free than when we were making the last record. I think the most inspiring thing, really, is just not being anywhere crazy and just being at home."

His solo record has had a lengthy gestation period but is nearing completion:

"There's one track where I need to get the vocal on, but I don't know who the vocalist is going to be yet... I never really listen to lyrics, but I can understand [them] a little bit more when it's spoken word rather than singing. It gets to my head a bit quicker."

Listen to one of Jamie xx's recent cuts, "All Under One Roof Raving" for a taster of what you might be able to expect.
