On June 2nd, The xx’s own Jamie xx will drop his solo debut, In Colour, due out through Young Turks Records. The 11-track LP has been preceded by “Girl”, “Sleep Sound”, “Gosh”, and “Loud Places” featuring xx bandmate Romy Madley Croft. With less than a month to go before the release date, the UK producer has let loose another offering in “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”.
While most of his material has been catered towards his electronic roots, Jamie xx’s production here takes a backseat to special guest Atlanta rapper Young Thug. It doesn’t quite have the club grit of “Gosh”; instead, as its title suggests, the track is a soulful, easy-going ode to living it up. Note: The version that’s surfaced is not the official Popcaan-aided album version. Listen in below.
In support of the album, Jamie xx also recently announced his biggest solo tour to date.
