UK indie band The xx have released a demo version of Open Eyes, a track that will feature on their upcoming second album. Posting on their website, the band wrote:
‘Open Eyes’ is a demo we did whilst creating our new album, we just wanted to share it with you.
They started recording the new album in November and so far no official release date has been set. The band are booked for festival appearances in Europe mid 2012, so an April/May release date is expected.
Their self-produced debut album was released in 2009 on the indie label Young Turks; it was recorded in a small garage that was part of the XL Recordings studio. The album received a rating of ‘Universal acclaim’ on Metacritic.com after being placed 9th on the Rolling Stone best of the year list.
