The xx have shared a snippet of footage of them playing together in the studio.
The short clip shows the band performing in a speeded up video, which you can view below.
This is the first time the trio have been seen together in quite some time. The last time The xx hinted at new music was in an Instagram post back in January 2020 before the start of the COVID pandemic.
But she confirmed last year that the band would be working on new material in the future.
“I got some messages and stuff from people saying: ‘What’s happened to The xx?’ And I just wanted to be clear with that and just say we love each other and we’re making more music together for sure,” Romy said at the time.
“But it’s nice to just encourage each other to do something different, and like I said, just learn and bring something new back. And also I like being able to just see Oliver and Jamie do something from afar and be inspired by that.”
The archive includes a new documentary by Jamie-James Medina on The xx’s 2014 shows at New York’s The Armory, where they played a run of 25 shows for just 40 people at a time.
