After announcing their upcoming string of shows and the follow-up to 2012's Coexist, as well as sharing two tantalizing snippets from the project (one of which has since been removed from Spotify), The xx will be performing live for the first time in two years.

Annie Mac announced via Twitter earlier today that the trio will be special guests on her BBC Radio 1 show to play new music this Thursday at 7pm GMT (2pm EST). The group will also be sitting down for an interview, during which they'll hopefully share more details about the album. 

The xx will take the stage again on November 28 in Croatia as they make their way across Europe and to Japan before traveling to South America for Lollapalooza festivals in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. While they have yet to announce the name or release date for the group's forthcoming album, The xx shared a playlist of songs that they've been listening to in the studio. 

Take a look at Annie Mac's tweet below, and stay tuned for more updates about The xx's return.
