After giving us two beautifully mellow and light records with "Sleep Sound" and "Girl", UK native Jamie xx returns today with something slightly more layered and intense, "All Under One Roof Raving," which has a blend of vocal samples from UK artists as well as some familiar elements from his past two releases. You can cop the single on iTunes, and read what Jamie had to say about the song when it was premiered on the radio below.
"I made "All Under One Roof Raving" whilst on the tail end of another year on the road with The xx. I was missing life in London and trawling through any music and videos that reminded me of home. One in particular I found very inspiring, Mark Leckey’s "Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore." I made this track in order to play out back home as I knew the year to come would be spent largely in the UK, DJing and making my own album. It serves as a reminder, not to take any time for granted at home or away."
The xx are currently working on their third studio album out in Texas.
