The xx's I See You Out Now

The xx’s I See You Out Now
Touring North American This Spring,
Tickets On Sale Today
To Appear On “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” January 17
January 13, 2017 — I See You, the long awaited third album from The xx, is out today on Young Turks. Stream and download it here.
The album is receiving early critical acclaim:
“The songs on I See You no longer insist on the austere minimalism of the band’s first two albums. The sonic palette has vastly expanded; there are a few solid dance beats, some plush echoes of the Beach Boys, some resonant and ghostly synthesizer tones, even a sample of Hall & Oates in ‘On Hold.’ The frailty and tension of the xx’s past catalog remain…But there are also new glimmers of confidence.”
“The xx have never been so unguarded, either emotionally or in their musical ambitions.
The result is as haunting as ever.”
I See You…sounds like an attempt to incorporate everyone’s talents into a new version of their sound, one true to their roots but richer and more varied.”
Best New Music, 8.4/10
"On its ambitious new album, the xx has created a vital, magnetic blend of
electronica, balladry and pop.”
 “The music’s dynamics make you feel closely involved in what they’re singing about—the highs as well as the lows. I See You presents a band wiling to be seen.”
“The boldest work yet from a band famous for subtlety—the sound of
The xx hitting the caps-lock key.”
“It feels like this wonderfully languid band may have just received a shot of adrenaline.”
“A cohesive mix of devastating vulnerability and quiet strength built on the British trio's blend of floating synths and delicate guitars.”
I See You marks a new era for the London trio of Romy Madley CroftOliver Sim and Jamie Smith, both sonically and in terms of process. The album was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London, and produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald.
The xx will tour North America this spring, with headline dates kicking off April 15 in San Francisco, and further shows in Seattle, Chicago, Austin, Philadelphia, New York and more as well as festival slots at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Shaky Knees and others soon to be announced.
Due to popular demand, additional shows have been added in San Francisco, Austin and Toronto. Tickets for all dates are on sale today at 10 a.m. local time; visit thexx.info/tour for more information.
The North American dates will follow a historic European tour, including a record-setting, seven night run at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, marking the longest ever run of sold out shows at the legendary venue, performing to 35,000 people over seven hometown performances.
To celebrate the release of I See You, The xx will appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” next TuesdayJanuary 17.
I See You is the follow up to The xx’s two previous albums—xx and Coexist—which have sold over 3 million copies between them, winning a host of accolades along the way. Watch the video for debut single “On Hold,” recorded in Marfa and directed by Alasdair McLellan, HERE.
