LISTEN: Jamie xx Shares New Music, “Gosh,” and Details Debut LP
In Colour is out June 2 via Young Turks
Jamie xx—British producer, solo artist, and founding member of The xx—has been dropping tracks from his upcoming solo debut full-length left and right. Late last week, he released In Colour‘s opening track, “Gosh,” along with the LP’s full track listing and album art.
“Gosh” is a great example of Jamie xx’s ability to create moving melodies and progress through repeated soundbites and remixed phrases. The nearly five-minute track builds without becoming stale, burrowing its appeal into your head to be stuck there forever…or at least for the rest of the day.
In anticipation for his debut release, Smith is heading out on an extensive spring tour. Check out his upcoming tour dates below the album’s info now.
