Ending months of speculation about exactly who’s behind one of the year’s most talked-about and sought after club tracks, Jamie xx today releases ‘Idontknow‘. Available via Young Turks / Remote Control Records, ‘Idontknow’ is Jamie’s first solo artist release since his highly acclaimed BRIT and GRAMMY® nominated 2015 debut album In Colour.
Without knowing the artist behind it, people have been raving to ‘Idontknow‘ since late autumn 2019 when Jamie first debuted the track. Since then, the track has taken on a life of its own in clubs and on dancefloors around the world, garnering huge support from the likes of Ben UFO, Four Tet, Caribou, HAAi and Bicep, or via Jamie’s own residency on NTS Radio and the series of last-minute, word-of-mouth parties he threw in aid of the MIND and CALM charities at north London’s the Cause (where he was joined by the likes of Four Tet, HAAi and Koreless) and beyond.
Today, ‘Idontknow‘ finally gets a full release, first through digital services but with a 12” available exclusively via independent retailers coming around 1st May (UK) with the rest of the world to follow. It comes hot on the heels of Jamie’s recent collaboration with Headie One and Fred Again.. on ‘Smoke‘ from their acclaimed GANG mixtape.
