Tune in and turn up

Following the release of their third album I See You, The xx have dropped a gorgeous video for an acoustic demo version of “Brave for You,” available on the deluxe version of the full-length.

The visuals were shot in Marfa, Texas, where the band recorded their new music. Opening with an unplugged Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim singing the song against the wall, the video also captures the trio walking along a highway.

While in Marfa, the group documented their time along with photographer Alasdair McLellan and collaborated on a limited zine photo book called It Could Be Love, which is now sold out. The xx are hosting another edition of their Night + Day festival next month in Iceland beside the Skógafoss waterfall with guests like Earl Sweatshirt, Sampha, and more.

In addition to “Brave for You,” two other unreleased songs are now available digitally on the deluxe version of I See You, “Seasons Run” and “Naive.” Stream the updated LP below.
