Meanwhile, the band released a new remix EP earlier this month. The London based trio had tracks from 'Coexist' remixed by artists signed to John Talabot's Hivern Discs label for the four track release titled 'HVNXX' EP. Producers providing remixes on the EP included Marc Piñol and Mistakes Are OK.
Last month The xx and Sampha released a limited-edition split 12" single. Just 750 copies of the split single were released on October 28. The single paired 'Without', a track from Sampha's recent 'Dual' EP, with 'Reconsider', a bonus track from 'Coexist'.
Earlier this autumn, The xx revealed they had "just begun" their new album, and said they were "feeling inspired and ready to go".
