    The xx are officially working on new music, and it may be here sooner than later. The material will mark their first since releasing I See You way back in 2017.

    The British indie outfit broke the exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday, shortly before calendars flipped to the new year. “Looking forward to 2020!” the three-piece posted. “We’ve all been working on new music, can’t wait to share it with you! Hope you have the best new year!”


    Upon its arrival, I See You was supported with multiple tours and even a mini documentary. The full-length boasted the single “I Dare You”, which Consequence of Sound named one of the best of 2017. The xx’s last show for that album cycle was at the 2018 Panorama Festival in New York.
