“The Essential Mix has always been an important one for me, been listening to it since before I was allowed to go to clubs. I spent the last two weeks trying to finish music so that it could be in here. Had a lot of fun! I hope you enjoy and can dance around your houses to it, and with friends online.”

Jamie xx has hinted that ‘Idontknow’ is the first of many new songs of his to be released this year. Meanwhile, his xx bandmate Romy Madley-Croft has announced her debut solo album, inspired by “club classics” and set to be “more upbeat” than The xx.

Madley-Croft also revealed that the band are working on new material too, saying: “We are making new music, we’re very much a band and we still love each other very much.

“Oliver and Jamie are my best friends and always will be. I wanted to thank you cos I know that we are a bit slow at putting out music, I know we take our time so thank you for your patience cos I know it’s a bit annoying.”
