Video: The xx – On Hold (Jamie xx Remix)

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.

Today, the band’s very own Jamie xx reveals his ‘On Hold’ remix – 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 Youvisual 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).
