Last week The xx shared a mysterious teaser of some new ambient, instrumental music, and now they’ve just unveiled another snippet.
It’s another 55-second teaser, with the artist name, album and title all simply listed as ‘-‘, but the new track has replaced the previous track on a playlist that the British trio recently shared of music they’ve been listening to in their studio.
The newie (below) is another piece that’s hard to break down due to how short it is, but there is definitely a male vocal on it — most likely that of the group’s Oliver Sim.
So yeah, that new record should be due any time now…
In October, The xx shared pictures of themselves back in the studio, so we know there’s definitely a follow up to their 2012 record Coexist on the way.
They’re also set to play a limited run of shows across November in some less-travelled places, including Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, Croatia and Japan.
