"In Colour doesn't feel like my first album because it's the end of six years' work. It's about all of the music I've been inspired by in that time; the people I've met, the places I've been. I've gone from being a fan of electronic music, admiring great artists and producers, to feeling like I'm a part of their world. In Colour is about transition and transformation- going away, coming home, going away again, coming home again- and how that journey changes me every time. I love touring, and the places I've visited, but when I'm on my laptop I'm always thinking about home or music. I love being in a band, being a producer, being a DJ. This album is about all of that. In Colour isn't the end of an era, it's the start of what's next."

Original Story

Only two days ago we got word that the debut Jamie xx album In Colour would feature collaborations with his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix partner Four Tet and his The xx collaborator Romy Madley-Croft, and now 'Loud Places', the latter of those two tracks, has gotten its premiere as Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World.

He also played another new track from In Colour called 'Gosh', which Jamie said is the last track he made for the record and that it "reminds him of home, but was still beautiful in a way". It's now available to stream over at Radio 1's website around the 24:20 mark. They're both equally incredible, and make it so, so hard to believe that In Colour is just his debut album.
