The xx - "On Hold"
After some recent events that have a lot of people feeling down, how about a little pick-me-up courtesy of The xx? Almost 5 years after the release of 2012's Coexist, The xx today announced that their third album, I See You, will be released in January and gave us the first taste of it with "On Hold". Needless to say, "On Hold" is good. Like, really good. It's definitely more upbeat than their previous albums and leans towards Jamie xx's solo material, which is by no means a bad thing. Is this a new direction for the band, or a momentary turn? Who knows, but at the end of the day it's a great song and that's all I care about.
I See You is due out January 13th, 2017
