Jamie XX appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio1 show last night for a short interview and live performance from his debut solo LP, In Colour.
The renowned British producer and DJ collaborated with Warpaint’s drummer, Stella Mozgawa, as well as post-rock and legendary electronic musician, Four Tet — in addition to longtime collaborators Romy and Oliver, bandmates from The xx, for this special live set on Annie’s weekly show.
LISTEN: Check out ‘Loud Places’, ‘Stranger in a Room’ and ‘Seesaw’ on the iPlayer recording of the show, starting at 1:23:06.
“We start again in the studio tomorrow, up until Christmas,” Jamie replied when Annie asks about new xx material at 1:34:20. “It’s going well and we’re just enjoying it.”
Oliver confirmed with a silent nod that the collective will come out with “new stuff” next year, as termed by Annie, marking the first new material from The xx since their 2013 full-length, Coexist. In the meanwhile, Ollie and Romy have jokingly referred to themselves as the “Kelly and Michelle” to “Jamie’s Beyoncé,” with the success of his solo effort — but fear not, longtime fans: new music from The xx in 2016 confirmed by the band themselves.
