Romy Confirms The xx Are Working on a New Album

Romy has revealed that The xx are back in the studio working on their yet-to-be-announced fourth album.

The singer, songwriter, and producer confirmed the news at Australia’s Beyond the Valley Festival last weekend, telling NME that the trio’s sessions are feeling “quite wide open” at the moment: “I think Oliver [Sim] and Jamie [xx] and I have all tried new things and learned a lot from different projects and I think that’s quite healthy to be like, ‘What have you learned? What should we do now?’”

Though Romy’s 2023 debut solo album, MID AIR, fell firmly in the tradition of house and dance music, she said to NME last year that she’d be picking up the guitar once again for the trio’s next project. Regarding how the next xx album will sound, Romy shared that while it’s still “wide open” and early on in the process, she feels that “you’ll still be able to tell it’s us.” See the interview below.

The xx’s most recent album was 2017’s I See You. They celebrated the 10th anniversary of their sophomore album, Coexist, back in 2022 with an expanded, deluxe re-release of the LP. In addition to Romy’s solo album last year, Oliver Sim shared his own solo LP in 2022 with Hideous Bastard, and confirmed that year that The xx would “definitely” record new music in the future.

Romy is continuing to play shows in support of MID AIR, including 2024 dates in Los Angeles, New York City, Australia, and South America. See the full schedule below, and get tickets to North American dates here and international dates here.
