The band could be dropping new music on Thursday.

An album’s worth of song titles credited to The xx have been uploaded to Shazam, lending weight to speculation that the London band are about to announce their third album.

One Reddit “detective” yesterday uncovered 12 new song titles attributed to The xx on the music-identifying app, which has been responsible for similar information leaks from artists over the last year, including The Avalanches, Japandroids and Sampha (also signed to Young Turks).


On Shazam the new album is titled I See You and contains a track called ‘Performance’, which the band debuted at a show in April 2014, as CoS points out.

The xx are also scheduled to appear on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show this Thursday (November 10) for a performance and interview. Over the past few weeks, they have been slipping mysterious minute-long tracks into an in-the-studio playlist, while also confirming a series of tour dates last month.

Tracklist, according to Shazam.

‘Brave For You’
‘I Dare You’
‘On Hold’
‘Seasons Run’
‘Say Something Loving’
‘Test Me’
‘A Violent Noise’
