The xx have a new album out this month called I See You, and they previously shared a taste of the album with "On Hold" and another new track on SNL called "I Dare You." Now, with the album arriving next week on January 13 via Young Turks, the group has seen fit to share another preview of the album with "Say Something Loving." After initially teasing the song with a video of them performing the track at Karaoke in Tokyo, they've shared the song proper via Spotify.
As with the previous slices of music we've heard from the forthcoming album, "Say Something Loving" is an upbeat affair. The vibrant new track is definitely a lot more expansive than we're used to hearing from the trio, exploring more and more of what they're capable of as musicians. There's definitely a sunny take on their usual brand of pop music, and it'll make a nice way to start the year as far as albums go. The xx will tour in support of the album this Spring with seven sold-out nights at London's Brixton Academy.
