The XX has released the music video for ‘On Hold’, gracing us with a glimpse of what’s coming in the group’s long-awaited album.

The track is the first single off the trio’s upcoming third LP, I See You, which is scheduled to drop mid-January.

Featuring warm filters, happy couples and sunset silhouettes, the Marfa-shot film pays homage to Texas, where parts of the album were written and recorded. 
Kudos to 
director, Alasdair McLellan, who captured real country town summer feels in the four-minute clip. Have a squiz below:

I See You is set to drop on January 13.

An album that is somehow both loud and indescribably quiet at the same time.
We can hardly wait for Jamie XX's first solo album but here's a taste.
