Jamie xx, one of the creative minds behind acclaimed London outfit The xx, has announced details of a brand new AA-sided single, and has offered one side, titled Sleep Sound, for fans to hear ahead of its release. The track will be unveiled digitally and on vinyl alongside Girl on Monday, 5th May.
Jamie and The xx are currently in the middle of a run of 25 intimate shows — that is, just 40 people per show — at New York’s world-famous Park Avenue Armory venue. Girl / Sleep Sound will be the producer’s first solo release since the single Far Nearer and his We’re New Here project in 2011.
More recently Jamie has found acclaim remixing the likes of Four Tet (Lion), Radiohead (Bloom), Adele (Rolling In The Deep), and his own band, including 2013 edits of Reconsider and Sunset. Fans who pre-order Girl / Sleep Sound now will receive an instant download of Sleep Sound.
