For the past three years, The xx has had a firm position on Spotify’s global Top Charts. This week, the band officially releases ‘Coexist’, their heavily anticipated sophomore album, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.

Coexist strips the hushed and intimate sound of their previous album back even further. Their aesthetic has always been about subtlety. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, they explain their approach:

"Throughout pop music, you usually have to make the chorus really big, but we have a way of working where everything has to be played live. That’s why there’s not loads and loads of guitars or doubled vocals. That’s really how we make minimal music—we’re making what we can play on stage. It sets limits, which is good.”

With ‘Coexist’, each song is accompanied by a filmed video sequence - a microscopic view of mixing oil and water, prisms, haze, or smoke. It was important for The xx that their fans to hear the new album while listening to these moving images.
