The xx release “Say Something Loving” video

The xx release video for “Say Something Loving”.

The xx have released a new video for their single “Say Something Loving.” Filmed in the band’s hometown of London, the video was directed by renowned photographer and filmmaker Alasdair McLellan, who also directed the video for previous single “On Hold” (which was shot in Marfa, Texas). “Say Something Loving” is taken from The xx’s third album I See You. Of the video, The xx say, “We wanted to celebrate our home town and revisit some of the places that reminds us of our friendship when we were growing up.
