The XX Working On "Completely Different" Third Album

London experimental/indie pop band The XX are working on their third album revealing that it sounds 'completely different' to previous efforts.

Producer Rodaidh McDonald, who has worked with the band before as well as with Bobby Womack, Adele, King Krule, Sampha and Vampire Weekend as manager of XL Records in-house studio, has told Dazed Magazine that the band third LP has a "completely different concept" their previous two.

"We’re doing it in Texas and Iceland, and maybe France. So that’s kind of starting in the middle of July, I’ve already spent a bit of time with them in Texas.  he said.

"There are songs which have come out of our experiences in New York and Texas that would never have come out in London; the colours and the ideas and the moods on some of these songs are just not things you would write in London. It’s about opening things up a bit more. They are a London band, but they’re also a band that’s spent a lot of time in different countries. So we’re trying to push that further with the Iceland trip, which is happening in July." He added.

The band's self-titled debut album was released in 2010, and was awarded the Mercury Prize. Their second album, Coexist, was released in 2012.

When I was working with Jess and Holly, for instance, I was fairly grounded in reality, but once I took their tracks back to my house I would loosen the reins to my sanity, crank the monitors so loud that all the instruments and voices would blissfully saturate together to a point where all of my delusional thoughts would just roller-skate off to Xanadu."

Ahead of the the full-length's release the band has premiered its lead single "Thought of Sound" which can be streamed below the tracklist. 

Tracklist:
01. It's Time To Come Home
02. Traces Of Our Tears

Zulu Winter Reveal Details Of New Album 'Stutter'

London indie rock five piece Zulu Winter have revealed more details for their highly anticipated new album 'Stutter', which is  due for release on July 21 via Fierce Panda.

The follow-up to their 2012 debut album 'Language', is a collection of studio and home recordings the band "didn't want to fester on a hard drive somewhere", 'Stutter' - as the title may or may not suggest – has evolved into a celebration of these never- (and almost never EVER-) released songs.

According to the press release, "‘Stutter’ is: ten songs breaks all known mini-album length rules, for a start. For a follow-up three of these tunes reached the stage of recorded completion in the studio - we'll leave you to guess which ones - while the other seven tracks were ostensibly angelic demos, musical ghosts looking for a dignified burial. Not for nothing did we want to call this record 'Worked In Progress'."

Two days ago the band revealed the album's first taste with the song "Heavy Rain" and its accompanied video, and also announced it will be their last release as ZW. Yesterday (June 5), they confirmed via their Facebook page, that they have decided that it's time to try out some new projects.

The post reads: Hello all. We realise we've been a little quiet recently. We've been doing a lot of thinking and talking and after nearly 15 years of playing in the same band have decided that it's time to try out some new projects. There's no love lost and we'll still be writing together in various forms but for the moment it won't be as Zulu Winter. 

We want to say thanks to everyone that supported us over the years. It's been long and hard but mainly it's been fun and musical. Although that's it for the moment who knows what will happen in the future. 
Big Love
Us.

Tracklisting:
01. Trigger
02. Games
03. Heavy Rain
04. Feel Love
05. Other Man
06. Need You Onside
07. Silence Is Golden
08. The Drift
09. Let Sleep Close Your Eyes
10. Bodies
