Published Mar 23, 2015Beatmaker Jamie xx has been releasing solo tracks for a number of years, and now The xx member has finally announced his proper debut solo album.
According to a story in mixmag [via Gorilla vs. Bear], the album is called In Colour and it will be out in June on Young Turks. The tracklist hasn't been announced yet, but it will apparently include the recent singles "Girl" and "Sleep Sound," plus some brand new tracks like "Gosh," "Loud Places," and "Seesaw." Four Tet and Jamie's xx bandmate Romy Madley Croft make guest appearances.
While we wait for more concrete information about In Colour, revisit the tracks "Girl" and "Sleep Sound" below. It's unclear whether the recently premiered "Alba" will be on the album.
In addition to releasing solo tracks and performing as a member of The xx, the producer known as Jamie Smith has released a remix album with Gil Scott-Heron. He has also produced tracks for Drake and Alicia Keys and has made many official remixes.
