The xx Share ‘On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)’ Watch Alasdair McLellan’s ‘On Hold’ Remix video

At the end of 2016, The xx announced their return and news of a new album (I See You) with the lead single ‘On Hold’. An undoubted highlight of one of the year’s most critically acclaimed albums, ‘On Hold’has quickly become one of The xx’s biggest songs to date.

Today, the band’s very own Jamie xx reveals his ‘On Hold’ remix – his first official remix in over four years. It comes accompanied by a ‘remix video’ from Alasdair McLellan, who made the original ‘On Hold’ video and has been a key I See You visual collaborator. McLellan also created videos for recent xx singles‘Say Something Loving’ and the star-studded I Dare You’ video (a collaboration with The xx and Raf Simons which featured, among others, Millie Bobby Brown, Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson, Lulu and Ernesto Cervantes).

‘On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)’ is available via all digital services. It will also be available as a limited (to 1000 copies worldwide) edition 12”, backed with Four Tet’s much talked-about remix of The xx’s ‘A Violent Noise’.

The xx will return to Australia in 2018 for an East Coast headline tour. These are The xx’s first Australian headline shows since they embarked on their 2013 tour, which saw them sell out multiple nights in advance at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion and Melbourne’s Festival Hall. Fans are encouraged to act quickly to secure their tickets to witness The xx, one of pop’s brooding perfectionists. Tickets go on sale Monday 21 August, don’t miss out!

Praise for The xx – I See You

#1 ARIA Album Chart

Feature Album – triple j

“This isn’t a wholly new band, it is rather an extension of the band we knew, a maturation possibly, but definitely an expansion: of thought, emotion, confidence and expression.” – Sydney Morning Herald

“I See You…sounds like an attempt to incorporate everyone’s talents into a new version of their sound, one true to their roots but richer and more varied.” – Pitchfork, Best New Music

“Friends, I have some good news for you… 2017 will be superior to 2016. The xx have decreed it so.”– Herald Sun ★★★★

“I See You pulls off the feat of managing to sound both exactly like the xx and unlike anything they have done before.” – The Guardian ★★★★

“There is fanfare from the outset, heralding a new era for the xx…The group has managed to move unmistakably forward while still maintaining its unique sound.” – The Australian

“It’s the sound of the xx moving out of their natural habitat – the shadows – and towards the more experimental, wide-ranging palette that producer Jamie “xx” Smith painted… The future looks bright.”– Rolling Stone Australia ★★★★

“The difference between I See You and 2012’s Coexist is Jamie xx’s production; the inspired beats give every song a brimming optimism. A welcome, extroverted side to the band we haven’t seen before.” – Stack

“The xx come at us with a fresh new sound but, more than ever, their music has less to do with chromosomes and delivers two gentle kisses onto listeners’ cheeks.” – The Music
