The xx’s Jamie xx will release his first solo single in three years on May 5th through Young Turks. According to Exclaim, the 12-inch record contains two songs, “G.I.R.L.” and “Sleep Sound”, the latter of which you can stream below.
Weaving in clacking percussion and spectral vocal samples, it’s a chilly hypnotic ripe for grimy dance floors and posh clubs alike. If hardcore fans find “Sleep Sound” to be familiar, it’s because it previously popped up in a Jamie xx BBC mix late last year.
Pre-orders for the 12-inch are now ongoing.
