Jamie xx – “Beat For”

jamie xx

It seems Jamie xx is everywhere he can be these days. His latest reworking of Gil Scott Heron's I'm New Here, dubbed We're New Here, is out this Tuesday and has received positive reviews from pretty much everybody — us included. And the other day when he stopped by BBC Radio's Newsnight, he tweaked their theme song. Now, just days later, a brand new Jamie xx original has hit the web. The track is apparently called "Beat For" and you can enjoy it below:

What we'd like to know is when are The xx dropping a proper follow-up to 2009's Mercury Award winning debut? After all this buzz surrounding them, it will be interesting to see which direction they head in.

Props to Disco Naivete for the audio.
