The xx have just announced their brand new single “Angels.”
It’s been a long time since we’ve played you anything new. This song is called “Angels,” it is the first single from our new album, Coexist. We’ve been playing this song live recently, so it feels good to share with you the version we’ve been working on for so long. We hope you like it. xx – The xx
The track is available to stream now below and from midnight tonight will be available to stream via Spotify, or to buy from iTunes or other digital retailers.
“Angels” is the first track to be released from The xx’s forthcoming second album Coexist, which is due for release on the 11th of September, 2012 via Young Turks (September 10 in the UK). Coexist has been produced by The xx’s Jamie Smith and is the follow up to their 2009 debut xx. It was recorded between November 2011 and May 2012 in the band’s own studio in London.
