The xx’s Jamie Smith who is responsible for the group’s sound and a bunch of awesome remixes, is going to be releasing a solo single titled ‘Far Nearer’. This is what he said about the release:
“It’s a tune I made on one of our short breaks from touring and I was eager to make some new music. I got a steel pan and made this track and it is coming out on Numbers Records in about a month or so.”
The new single was played by Xfm yesterday and I still haven’t seen floating around online, as soon as I find it I’ll post it.
