The xx share first track from their new album // Listen to 'Angels'
Following their recent lottery-based shows, their new album announcement, and Youtube installing a new server just to handle fan shot videos (that might not be true), The xx have unveiled the first track to be taken from their forthcoming new album Coexist.
The track in question is called 'Angels' and you can hear it here or below.
"It's been a long time since we've played you anything new. This song is called Angels, it is the first single from our new album, Coexist. We've been playing this song live recently, so it feels good to share with you the version we've been working on for so long. We hope you like it. xx The xx"

We all get annoyed from time to time when that one person in front of you at a gig proceeds to block your view by extending their arm in the the air, desperately flailing all over the place - camera phone in hand - longing to capture a dodgy clip of the band on stage. [read more]
