First Listen: The xx

Ahead of The XX’s oh-so-very-sold-out Australian shows this week the band has released Angels, the lead single from their new record Coexist.

The song has been released with a brief statement from the band simply announcing “It’s been a long time since we’ve played you anything new. This song is called Angels, it is the first single from our new album, Coexist. We’ve been playing this song live recently, so it feels good to share with you the version we’ve been working on for so long. We hope you like it. xx The xx”.

The album is set for release on Friday 7th September and hopefully the dates for the band’s promised return tour in 2013 will follow soon after.

Coexist track list:

_ Angels_
Chained
Fiction
Try
Reunion
Sunset
Missing
Tides
Unfold
