Jamie xx shares video for his remix of The xx’s “On Hold”: Watch

on September 13, 2017, 10:52am

 

The xx announced their return with their first album in five years, I See You, by releasing the single “On Hold” in November of last year. Now, the band’s resident producer/DJ Jamie xx has used that track for his first official remix in over four years.

Jamie’s reworking comes accompanied by a new visual from director Alasdair McLellan, who helmed the track’s original video. Like Jamie xx’s remix, his new version is a re-edit of the original, cutting things up to fit the new rhythm with a particular focus on the scenes of Jamie DJing a small, black-and-white house party. Check it out above.

The remix is available on a 12-inch limited to 1,000 pressings and backed with Four Tet’s remix of “A Violent Noise” from earlier this year; pre-orders are going on here. The xx also have an upcoming appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live scheduled for September 28th. That promo stop comes amidst fall tour dates supporting the Mercury Prize-nominated I See You, which also happens to be one of our favorite albums of the year (so far).
