The xx debut lead single Angels off upcoming record Coexist

Posting on their Facebook page, the band wrote: "It's been a long time since we've played you anything new. This song is called 'Angels', it is the first single from our new album, 'Coexist'."

London famous trio The xx have returned with a new single titled "Angels" which appears on their upcoming record Coexist the forthcoming due for release on September 10.


The band's Jamie Smith once again took on production duties on the album, which they began work on in early November 2011 before completing the sessions last month. The track definitely carries on where the band left off and is a signature xx song, complete with love-torn lyrics, gentle atmospherics and an immersive mix of underground influences and classic sounds. Don't you just love it?!


Posting on their Facebook page, the band wrote: "It's been a long time since we've played you anything new. This song is called 'Angels', it is the first single from our new album, 'Coexist'. We've been playing this song live recently, so it feels good to share with you the version we've been working on for so long. We hope you like it. xx The xx". At the same time, posting on Twitter, the band's record label Young Turks wrote: "Hear 'Angels' the first song from 'Coexist'. Also find the artwork!"

The singer and guitarist Romy Madley Croft previously said the new songs show the evolution of the band over the past few years. "I've been thinking that I hope people enjoy it as a separate thing. The first album exists – we're not trying to make it again", she said, before adding: "We've just grown up, and although this isn't a 'grown up' album, we’ve evolved. It's just us growing a bit more. I hope people enjoy it as a continuation, rather than us trying to make the first album again."


She added that although she's "happy we've progressed" the new material is "not prog rock".
