I See You, the third album by the xx, attempts to incorporate everyone’s talents into a new version of their sound, one true to their roots but richer and more varied. The xx’s self-titled debut remains one of the great sleeper hits of the last decade. No one-including, it’s fair to say, the xx themselves-expected that their murmuring blend of um R&B and C86 indie pop would go on to sell a million copies and become hugely influential. But from the beginning, the London trio had a lot going for them.

The xx will release their third album on January 13, 2017. I See You is the UK trio’s third album, and is described by Young Turks as a new era for the London trio 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 is said to feature a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach. First single ‘On Hold’ can be streamed now on this site. It samples Hall & Oates’ 1981 classic ‘I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)’.
The exquisite stillness of the xx's music was so distinctive and influential that, by the time of Coexist, it felt dangerously close to confining them instead of defining them. Given the half decade between that album and I See You, change wasn't just necessary, it was inevitable.
