The xx Unveil Their Dreamy New Track “Say Something Loving”: Listen
In celebration of the new year, The xx have released their new track “Say Something Loving.” The track follows their sleek lead single “On Hold” and will appear on their highly-anticipated forthcoming album I See U, which arrives on January 13.
Sampling the Alessi Brothers‘ 1978 track “Do You Feel It?”, the songs finds singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim exchanging love-sick lyrics over a twinkling electronic melody. “You say something loving / It’s so overwhelming, the thrill of affection / Feels so unfamiliar / You say something loving,” they croon. It’s quite a change of pace for the group, but a welcome one at that.
Not to mention, on Monday (January 3), Croft announced her engagement to girlfriend and visual artist Hannah Marshall via Instagram. “Last night, a very special person asked me a very beautiful question,” she wrote in the caption. “I said yes! 💍💕💕💕💕💕💕”
Now, that’s the way to start off 2017!
