Jamie xx Preps New 12"; Stream the B-Side Now

Although Jamie xx has been making increasingly regular appearances on the international DJ circuit in the past few years—even as his band, The xx, has been quite busy touring the globe—he hasn't released new solo material, apart from a few remixes, since 2011. That will soon change, as he's put together a new, two-track 12" for Young Turks. "G.I.R.L." b/w "Sleep Sound" is scheduled for release on May 5, and the latter track, which finds Jamie xx exploring a shuffling, laid-back house groove, is now streaming online. The song can be heard in its entirety below, where we've also posted Jamie xx's upcoming tour schedule.
