The xx debuted a new track ‘Swept Away’ at a show in LA this week – scroll down to watch it.

The track, which has a heavy dance feel, is taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Coexist’, which is due for release on September 10. The band’s Jamie Smith has once again taken on production duties on the album.

Last month The xx unveiled ‘Angels’ – the first track from ‘Coexist’. They later performed it on US TV show Conan.


The London band have also announced a trio of intimate UK shows for September. They will take to the stage at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on September 10 – the release date for ‘Coexist’. They will follow this with gigs at The Coal Exchange in Cardiff on September 11 and Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on September 12. They will also perform at Bestival in the Isle of Wight on September 7.

Speaking about the making of ‘Coexist’, the band revealed that they have “gained confidence” since the release of their debut album, xx. “It’s nice not feeling cripplingly shy,” Romy Madley Croft said.

The tracklisting for ‘Coexist’ is as follows:

‘Swept Away’
‘Our Song’
