Here’s the new one from their upcoming album ‘Coexist’. It’s going to be the second track on the album.

After being initially rather unimpressed by ‘Angels’, it has really grown on me, and I imagine this track will too, because it’s not like it’s an instantaneous punch-packing choon. I think it was Nialler9 who tweeted that the songs will probably make more sense in an album context. You don’t really take quick hits of The xx, do you? It’s more large chunks, digested. Anyway, really looking forward to the record, and to seeing them at Electric Picnic. I’ve only seen them live twice, in Tripod in December 2009, and on the Park Stage at Glastonbury in 2010, along with a set by Jamie xx at Forbidden Fruit last summer. A two year wait is a big gap for one of my favourite bands!
