The XX Reveal Second Album Plans
The trio will start work in October
Mercury-nominated band The XX have revealed that they might begin work on their second album this year. The UK garage-loving band said that they could start to pen some new stuff as early as October.
Bassist and singer Oliver Sim told Xfm: "We've found touring to be not too creative. We come home in October so hopefully we’ll start writing then. I think there will be pressure on us. This album was made with no expectations of us; no-one knew who we were."
"A lot of the songs were written in the mind frame that only the three of us would hear them. Writing in the mind frame that a lot of people might hear these new songs will be different, but hopefully it's something we can block out."
