We were treated to a new song from Jamie xx a couple months ago, 'All Under One Roof Raving', but things have been pretty quiet on his end since with the exception of a few festival shows. In a recent interview with The FADER, though, he breaks his silence. He said a new album from The xx is "coming", and talked about its production:

"We've got quite a lot of songs that are not finished, but I'm excited about it... it feels a lot more free than when we were making the last record. I think the most inspiring thing, really, is just not being anywhere crazy and just being at home."

His solo album is about done, too:

"There's one track where I need to get the vocal on, but I don't know who the vocalist is going to be yet... I never really listen to lyrics, but I can understand [them] a little bit more when it's spoken word rather than singing. It gets to my head a bit quicker."

Get excited!
