The xx share tour dates, studio playlist ahead of new music

For the first time since 2013, the xx will be taking to stages around the world. From Croatia to South America’s Lollapalooza, they will be sharing new material off of their upcoming, as-yet-untitled third album.

As you wait for them to take to your country, you can kick back with a playlist the band shared today. It’s a decade-spanning playlist the group has been playing in the studio and it’s a predictably eclectic collection of pop geniuses, classic influencers, and personal favorites. You really should check out that new Jenny Hval. Choose your preferred streaming service here or just listen via Spotify below.

Some of you will be hearing new material soon; the rest of us will have to wait for either the start of the PR cycle or, in a perfect world, a surprise drop. In the meantime, I’m going to press play on the Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror.” Check out the tour dates below.
