‘I See You’ was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Texas, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London and produced by the band’s Jamie Smith, plus Rodaidh McDonald. It has been described as “more outward-looking, open and expansive”.

The xx’s Romy spoke about releasing new single ‘On Hold’, saying: “I’m really excited, nervous and excited… I’ve listened to it a lot of times thinking, how can I change it, how can it be different, is this right, is this good.”

‘On Hold’ samples Hall and Oates’ 1981 track ‘I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)’. Daryl Hall has told the band to “pay me” following the sample.
