Pitchfork has just reported one of the best news articles of the year! 2010’s breakthrough act and Mercury Music Prize-winning stars The xx are currently recording their second album as I type this post.
To accompany the recording process of this album, a new blog has been created that will be used to post “inspirations + pictures + favourite songs”. This is such a clever way to gather even more fans after they experience the brilliance of their self-titled debut album.
While the band remained obscure from the public eye, Jamie xx has released a generally positive remix album with Gil-Scot Heron and is the mastermind behind the production of Drake’s new duet “Take Care” that features Rihanna. Speaking about Rihanna, she is also apparently sampling a song of The xx.
Get ready for wigs to get snatched…again!
