The xx Are All Working on Solo Albums
Their label says "hopefully some of that will see the light of day this year"
Published Aug 25, 2020We're still patiently waiting on new music from The xx, and a recent report suggests that it could arrive in the form of three solo albums from the trio.
In conversation with Music Week, Young Turks managing director Matthew Thornhill shared that Romy Madley Croft, Jamie xx and Oliver Sim are chipping away at individual efforts.
"At the moment, all of The xx are working on solo projects," he said. "Young Turks artists always collaborate together and The xx are no different, Romy and Oliver both sung on Jamie's record, Jamie is producing tracks, along with other people, for Romy and Oliver, so there's a lot of collaboration between the band. They're all working independently and hopefully some of that will see the light of day this year from all of them."
Thornhill added that Jamie xx will release more singles to follow this year's "Idontknow," and "undoubtedly an album at some point, too, but that's a little way off yet."
His reveal comes months after Croft had teased a solo album and new music during a livestream.
