The xx post update on third album, premiere new material

After a number of rumours and speculations about the next xx record, the band have now posted an official update on their progress, which you can read below.

"Hello,

It’s been a while, we hope everything is wonderful with you.

This year has been a creative one for us so far, we have been hard at work writing and recording new music in a few different places around the world.

In the spring we spent a few weeks in the incredible and unique town of Marfa in Texas. Then, in Summer we spent some time just outside of Reykavik in Iceland. This Autumn we have been back in London, writing and having some time at home but this week we are heading out to Los Angeles to continue the writing and recording process.

Although all very different, each of these places have been inspirational environments to create music in, and each will have an influence on the new album. The whole process is a big adventure and we can’t wait for a time when we’ll be able to share the music with you.

Lots of love until then.

xx The XX”

Although it is not much to go on, The xx did recently premiere some new material at a show in New York earlier this week. Check out the Vine below for a snapshot of the new work.
