Barclaycard Mercury Prize winner to release 'Far Nearer' soon
The xx‘s Jamie Smith is set to release a solo single.
The band won the Barclaycard Mercury Prize earlier this month for their debut, ‘xx’, while Smith‘s single, ‘Far Nearer’, is set to hit UK radio tonight (September 28).
He told Xfm.co.uk that the song would be officially released soon.
“It’s a tune I made on one of our short breaks from touring and I was eager to make some new music,” he explained. “I got a steel pan and made this track and it is coming out on Numbers Records in about a month or so.”
Smith has not yet decided what name the single will be released under.
