Jamie xx celebrates the dancefloor with 'In Colour'
Jamie xx has released his highly anticipated debut album ‘In Colour’ on Young Turks. The eleven track LP includes previous releases ‘Girl’ and ‘Sleep Sound’ as well as ‘Loud Places’, which features vocals from Romy Madley Croft.
The release of ‘In Colour’ comes on the back of an incredible six year creative period for Jamie xx, which has seen him alternate effortlessly between his role as founding member and producer of The xx, and creator of more electronic and club orientated music as Jamie xx. A string of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single ‘Far Nearer’, remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Florence + The Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus ‘We’re New Here’, Jamie’s seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s final studio album - hinted at what was to come. With ‘In Colour’ – a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations with The xx bandmates Romy Madley Croft (‘Seesaw’ and ‘Loud Places’) and Oliver Sim (‘Stranger In A Room’), Young Thug and Popcaan (‘Good Times’) and Four Tet (‘Seesaw’) – Jamie delivers his definitive artistic statement.
