The xx have just dropped the third track from their eagerly-awaited third album I See You, and it’s a swelling, uplifting one.

‘Say Something Loving’ follows on from earlier singles ‘On Hold’ and ‘I Dare You’, the trio giving us a pretty good idea of the expansive sounds we can expect from the record when it arrives on January 13th.

The UK outfit had previously teased the track with a quick round of karaoke, but now the more polished version is also here to hold down the fort until the rest of the tunes arrive – we’ll just jam what we have on repeat until then.

For now, you can pre-order the record either as a download, on CD, or as a very shiny-looking vinyl, and start twiddling your thumbs in anticipation.
