The xx currently recording new album

Jamie xx, one third of London trio The xx, has without question outshone his peers in 2015 with the massive success of debut album In Colour.

Despite the producer’s hectic schedule, including extensive touring, radio programs, composing ballet scores and more, he hasn’t been neglecting his duties with The xx.

Alongside fellow bandmates Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim, the trio have taken to Facebook to announce that they have been working on a third full length album, three years after 2012’s Coexist.

It seems that the London natives are working up until Christmas to push towards finishing the album, which has reportedly been in production for well over a year.

For their forthcoming album the group has been working closely with high profile producer Rodaidh McDonald, also known for his work with King Krule, How to Dress Well, Adele, Savages, Daughter, The Horrors and Vampire Weekend.

The band is hoping to release the album in 2016 Jamie revealed to Gigwise in late November.

Jamie xx is visiting Australia later this month for a run of festivals and headline shows, including one special double bill with the legendary Four Tet.
