After spending the final throes of 2019 remembering ten years of their debut album xx, The xx have started 2020 by revealing their hope to release a brand new album soon.
“Looking forward to 2020,” the band said on social media. “We’ve all been working on new music, can’t wait to share it with you! Hope you have the best new year!”
The xx last released an album in 2017; I See You sparked some notable touring landmarks for the band, not least of which the record-breaking residency at London’s Brixton Academy. It was a period which they documented with director Sylvie Weber on a short film recorded in Berlin entitled We See You Berlin.
“A huge thank you to Sylvie Weber for capturing some truly intimate moments from our show in Berlin earlier in the year, and to YouTube for supporting this project,” they said at the time. “We’re genuinely moved by the incredibly beautiful portraits of our fans. We see you Berlin.”
