The xx’s “On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)” out now

To perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” September 28

Touring the U.S. this fall

At the end of 2016, The xx announced their return and news of a new album, I See You, with the lead single “On Hold.” An undoubted highlight of one of the year’s most critically acclaimed albums, “On Hold” has quickly become one of The xx’s biggest songs to date.

Now, the band’s very own Jamie xx reveals his “On Holdremix – his first official remix in over four years. It comes accompanied by a “remix video” from Alasdair McLellan, who made the original ‘On Hold’ video and has been a key I See You visual collaborator. McLellan also created videos for recent xx singles “Say Something Loving” and the star-studded “I Dare You” video (a collaboration with The xx and Raf Simons which featured, among others, Millie Bobby Brown, Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson, Lulu and Ernesto Cervantes). Watch the Alasdair McLellan-directed “On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)” video HERE.

On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)” is available via all digital services. It will also be available as a 1000 copy, limited edition 12” backed with Four Tet’s much talked-about remix of The xx’s “A Violent Noise.” Fans can pre-order the 12” HERE and stream/download the release HERE.

Additionally, The xx will perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!September 28 in the midst of their U.S. tour, kicking off later this month. Fans can register here to request tickets to the band’s “Kimmel” performance.

The band’s U.S. dates commence September 23 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, with further shows in Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin and more. Please see below for full tour details and visit for more information.

Released in January, The xx’s third album I See You debuted at #1 in the UK and #2 in the U.S., and overall is The xx’s biggest worldwide chart success to date. Equally lauded by the critics, I See You was nominated for the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize album of the year. It follows in the footsteps of the band’s previous two albums – 2009’s xx and 2012’s Coexist – which have now sold over three million copies between them. I See You marks a new era for Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith, both sonically and in terms of process. For while xx and Coexist were both made in relative isolation in London, I See You was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa, TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London and is characterized by a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach. Produced by Jamie Smith and Rodaidh McDonald, I See You is The xx at their boldest yet, performing with more clarity and ambition than ever before.
