The xx have posted an update about the upcoming third record, and also recently debuted new material at a New York show.

Jamie xx recently gave some brief details when speaking to the FADER about his own solo projects, but the full band have now released an update:


It’s been a while, we hope everything is wonderful with you.

This year has been a creative one for us so far, we have been hard at work writing and recording new music in a few different places around the world.

In the spring we spent a few weeks in the incredible and unique town of Marfa in Texas. Then, in Summer we spent some time just outside of Reykavik in Iceland. This Autumn we have been back in London, writing and having some time at home but this week we are heading out to Los Angeles to continue the writing and recording process.

Although all very different, each of these places have been inspirational environments to create music in, and each will have an influence on the new album. The whole process is a big adventure and we can’t wait for a time when we’ll be able to share the music with you.

Lots of love until then.

xx The xx”

The band are currently working on the follow up to 2012's Coexist, and its expected summer 2015.

Watch a brief Vine of a new track and a video of them performing "Islands" below. Both clips are from the pre-party at the Guggenheim Art Museum before this weekend's International Gala.
