The xx – ‘Angels’ | New Music

After weeks of eluding mystique – similar to the way their tunes swan through your speakers – The xx have opened the lid on their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Coexist. The indie pop outfit, comprised of Jamie xx, Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim, had previously seduced us with live performances of their new album material (although for those of us that didn’t make it to their recent shows, we had crap quality audio to suffice), but today we have the studio version of the LP’s first single, “Angels”.

In addition to the new tune, the band have also unveiled Coexist‘s cover (see above) and tracklist (see below), and announced a string of new tour dates in North American this Autumn, which you can view after the jump. Every ticket purchased comes with a free download of Coexist, which is due out September 10th internationally, and September 11th in the US.
