The xx and Sampha to release limited edition split 12" single
Just 750 copies of the split single will be released on October 28
Just 750 copies of the split single will be released on October 28 and pre-orders are being taken now on the Young Turks website. The single will pair 'Without', a track from Sampha's recent 'Dual' EP, with 'Reconsider', a bonus track from The xx's 2012 album 'Coexist'.
'Without'/'Reconsider' is the second in a series of split singles being released this year on the Young Turks label, home to Chairlift, SBTRKT and FKA Twigs as well as The xx and Sampha. The special singles are intended to "showcase the exciting releases we've had throughout 2013", the label explain on their website.
Young Turks' previous split 12" single, which came out on September 16, coupled a track from Welsh producer Koreless with a collaborative track between two Spanish artists, John Talabot and Pional.
Meanwhile, last month (September) The xx revealed they have "just begun" their new album, the follow-up to last year's 'Coexist', and said they are "feeling inspired and ready to go". 'Coexist' recently won the Best 'Difficult' Second Album Prize at the AIM Independent Music Awards.
