Romy Madley Croft of The xx has said that the band's forthcoming second album, 'Coexist' – which is due for release on September 10 – isn't a "world away" from their eponymous 2010 debut.

Speaking in Rolling Stone, she said that the new record "carries on" what they were doing on 'xx'. She said:

It just sort of carries it on. It's developed, but it doesn't seem like completely a world away. I hope people will just enjoy it as a development of where we were before.


Meanwhile, her bandmate and producer, Jamie Smith, has said the production on their second album is "just better" than his work on their first LP.

The London band play a trio of intimate UK shows next month. They will take to the stage at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on September 10, followed by gigs at The Coal Exchange in Cardiff on September 11 and Edinburgh's Usher Hall on September 12. They will also play Bestival on the Isle of Wight on September 7.

The xx will also team up with the BBC Philharmonic orchestra for a special concert in Bridlington on September 19, where they will play brand new orchestral material as well as tracks from their two albums.

The new material has been written by composer Alex Baranowski, who has most recently worked on the National Theatre's productions Hamlet and Frankenstein. For more information, visit BBC.co.uk/orchestras/philharmonic.
