Jamie xx – Girl

In March, James Blake took to his BBC Radio 1 residency to release a track entitled "Bloke" by an unknown artist named "Simon Tallywhacker." Last night, the British crooner & producer revealed on his program that "Bloke" was actually "Girl," a track from reticent The xx frontman Jamie xx's upcoming 12" single. "Sleep Sound," the other side of the single, has already been unleashed on the internet, and now "Girl" is available for streaming as well. "Girl" is the melancholic haze listeners have become accustomed to indulging in when it comes to the music of Jamie xx, and with a new xx album in the works and this current single it looks as though this year will yield a great deal of activity from the trio. You can check out the track above, or check it out on Blake's program here. "Girl" and "Sleep Sound" will both be released on the same single on May 5th through Young Turks
