The producer played the track during his monthly takeover
The song, ‘Girl’, was originally described by Blake as a track called ‘Bloke’ by a producer called Simon Tallywhacker. The track opened his most recent Radio 1 show, which he hosts on a monthly basis.
‘Girl’ is the flip-side to Jamie xx’s recently announced single ‘Sleep Sound’, which is due for release on the Young Turks label on May 5. You can listen to it at the bottom of the page.
Jamie xx will be playing this year’s Field Day festival in London on Saturday June 7, alongside Drenge, Arthur Beatrice, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, Bake and Eyedress, Neneh Cherry & RocketNumberNine, Only Real, ReviveHer and Tourist. The headliners on Saturday are Metronomy.
