The xx have confirmed what we’ve all been waiting/hoping for – the trio is in the studio recording their third full-length album. No word on an actual release date, but they plan to “test” out some of their new material during their recently announced live shows later this year. They also shared a playlist of songs they’ve been listening to in the studio (links below). Enjoy and stay tuned for more.
Rumor has it the robots are plotting a world tour in 2017.
A new website Alive 2017 has popped up and that alone makes me believe something big is on the horizon. Daft Punk produced two live albums, Alive 1997 and Alive 2007, named after their two tours. The timing also fits with Daft Punk playing live every ten years.
This could easily be a big internet hoax to get way too many people excited, but I believe (hope) it’s legit. Stay tuned.
