Indie Music Artists The xx And Fleet Foxes Return With New Music in 2017

Fleet Foxes have yet to release any information about their upcoming music, but it is anticipated to be released in 2017.

The xx, an English indie pop band formed in 2005, will release a new album, I See You, January of this upcoming new year. This album will follow up to their first two full albums, xx, released in 2009, and Coexist, released in 2012. The xx consist of members Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, and Jamie xx, who met while studying at Elliott School in the UK. The band’s debut album xx was met with wide critical acclaim and reached high on the charts, including the ninth spot in Rolling Stone’s Best of the Year list. Three years later, The xx released Coexist, an album inspired by club music yet generally more downtempo than their former work, including lead single “Angels.” The album was initially released via streaming service on the band’s website in a collaboration with Internet Explorer, then later released worldwide a week later.

Jamie xx’s solo debut album, In Color, released in 2015, is said to have influenced the band’s upcoming work, I See You. The band reports the album to have a different concept from the first two records, releasing first single titled “On Hold” in November of 2016. I See You was recorded between March of 2014 and August of 2016, and the band hopes that releasing new music will help some people feel some kind of happiness upon its release on January 13, 2017. In anticipation for the band’s upcoming European tour dates, fans have been receiving invitations in the mail to upcoming tour dates in their area. There is no doubt that these indie music artists’ album is awaited with great anticipation.
