The xx

Today, The xx’s Jamie xx reveals his “On Hold” remix – his first official remix in over four years. It comes accompanied by a “remix video” from Alasdair McLellan, who made the original “On Hold” video and has been a key I See You visual collaborator. McLellan also created videos for recent xx singles “Say Something Loving” and the star-studded “I Dare You” video (a collaboration with The xx and Raf Simons which featured, among others, Millie Bobby Brown, Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson, Lulu and Ernesto Cervantes). “On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)” is available via all digital services. It will also be available as a 1000 copy, limited edition 12” backed with Four Tet’s much talked-about remix of The xx’s “A Violent Noise.” The band’s U.S. dates commence September 23 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, with further shows in Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin and more.

The xx’s current release I See You marks a new era for 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.The album was Produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald.
