Jamie xx shares confounding new single 'Idontknow'


Jamie xx, the producer extraordinaire, is back with a brand new solo song, the first track he has shared under his own name since 2015. Fans of his live show may already recognise it.

‘Idontknow’ couldn’t arrive at a better time. As we’re all continuing to adhere to social distancing rules, the need for new music has never been greater. Jamie xx has heeded the call and has shared a new song with a new 12″ vinyl arriving next month.

The vinyl release will arrive on May 1st in the UK and May 15th in the United States via Young Turks. It marks the producer’s first release in five years and will be welcomed by his fans who have already heard the track live.

‘Idontknow’ with it’s confounding pulse has been a staple of The xx’s live show for some time but now the track has been given its full release. It’s a pumping yet a little cluttered affair but still acts as a perfect reason to get up off your sofa and move your feet.

Earlier this month Jamie xx joined Headie One and Fred again.. on their collab song ‘Smoke’ but the new song could signal a return to the solo stage for the producer.
