It's been a minute since we've heard from Jamie xx (or his band, the xx, for that matter), but he broke his silence last night when he premiered a new track called "Alba" during Jon Hopkins BBC Radio 1 residency. You can hear it at the 58:00 mark of the show's replay.
According to xx's record label Young Turks, "Alba" will be released on Record Store Day (April 18th) as part of the release of the Jamie xx-produced soundtrack to silent film Continuum. This is Jamie xx's first single since last year's party-starting "All Under One Roof Raving". He's also been working on a debut album for quite some time; there's still no word on when we might hear that.
