Having recorded their first two albums in various studios around London, The xx are obviously sick of the place. They announced last month that their next album, the follow-up to 2012's Coexist, will be recorded in Texas, and they've now thrown additional sessions in Iceland (and possibly France) into the mix. Iceland and Texas are locations of such contrast it's going to be pretty interesting to see how that affects what they come up with.

The band have been seen most recently at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona last month, and with no further dates scheduled they are free to jet around the world to hone their third LP; they plan to head into the studio to start work on the as-yet-untitled album in the middle of July. Their last release was the single 'Fiction', the video for which you can watch below.
