The xx are back in the studio and going back on the road.
Four years after indie's favorite electronic trio released their second album "Coexist" and 17 months since they collaborated on member Jamie xx's solo LP "In Colour", The xx's anticipated third record has finally been confirmed.
They posted an open letter to Facebook confirming they are currently in the studio recording the forthcoming LP, which will most likely be released in 2017.
"It's been a while but you've been on our minds! It feels so good to be together making new music."
They have also shared a playlist of their favorite "in the studio" songs that includes Alicia Keys, The Cure, Velvet Underground and track #2 of Solange's new record "A Seat At The Table", "Weary".
