Produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald, indie/electronica trio The xx have provided an early taste tester of their forthcoming LP I See You with the release of track ‘On Hold‘ to give fans a taste of the brooding mellow vibes that ground the soon to be released third album. The visual trimmings behind the track were shot in Texas, one of the album’s recording locations, alongside New York, Los Angeles, London and Reykjavik.

‘On Hold‘ is an ode to not knowing what you have until it’s gone, and taking someone for granted, underpinned by perky, contemplative tonal qualities. The xx sing praises to the video director, Alasdair McLellan, “…whose work we adore. We hope this video reflects just some of the warmth and acceptance we have encountered.”

I See You is out Jan 13 via Young Turks/Remote Control.
