Jamie xx also today reveals the video to In Colour album opener “Gosh”. Directed by Erik Wernquist, the video can be seen below. “Gosh” is already a firm favorite among fellow DJs and fans alike, having first been premiered alongside lead single “Loud Places (ft. Romy).”
The release of In Colour comes on the back of an incredible six year creative period for Jamie xx, which has seen him alternate effortlessly between his role as founding member and producer of The xx, and creator of more electronic and club orientated music as Jamie xx. A string of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single “Far Nearer,” remixes for the likes of Adele,Radiohead and Florence &The Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus We’re New Here – Jamie’s seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron‘s final studio album – hinted at what was to come. With In Colour – a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations with The xx band mates Romy Madley Croft (“Seesaw” and “Loud Places”) and Oliver Sim (“Stranger In A Room”), Young Thug and Popcaan (“Good Times”) and Four Tet (“Seesaw”) -Jamie delivers his definitive artistic statement.
In Colour will be available on download, CD, LP and Deluxe LP formats. The Deluxe LP is a limited edition triple LP, cut at 45rpm on coloured vinyl and including two exclusive instrumentals.
