With his band, The xx, currently in the middle of a run of 25 intimate shows (playing to just 40 people per show) at New York’s world-famous Park Avenue Armory venue, Jamie xx today announces details of a brand new AA-sided single.
The single – which will be available on 12″ vinyl and download – features two songs, “Girl” and “Sleep Sound“, and will be released on May 6, 2014 on Young Turks. It will be Jamie xx‘s first solo release since 2011, a year which saw him release his debut single, “Far Nearer“, as well as We’re New Here, his collaborative reinterpretation of Gil Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here album. Jamie is also renowned for his remixes of the likes of Four Tet (“Lion”), Radiohead (“Bloom”), Adele (“Rolling In The Deep”) and The xx (most recently 2013’s “Reconsider” and “Sunset” edits).
