The xx just shared some new music

A 55-second ambient clip has appeared on Spotify.

The first taste of The xx’s new album may have arrived.

Appearing on Spotify overnight, the 55-second clip was added to the band’s in-the-studio playlist. Uncredited, with completely blank artwork, it’s a slice of sweeping, very-xx-esque ambience. While it’s not credited to The xx themselves, vocals that sound rather a lot like Romy Madley-Croft’s are buried within, and it’s listed as belonging to Young Turks, the band’s long-time label home.

Listen to the clip below. The xx have been working on their new album for over a year now, and are set to head out on their first tour in two years later this month. They’re racking up next summer’s festival appearances, too - their full touring schedule is as follows:

28 Zagreb, Bocarski Dom
29 Prague, Forum Karlin
30 Poznan, Hala Nr 2 MTP

01 Warsaw, Nowy Teatr
03 Vilnius, Compensa Arena
06 Tokyo, Toyosu PIT

23-25 Bogota, Festival Estereo Picnic
25 Sao Paulo, Lollapalooza
31 San Isidro, Lollapalooza

01 Santiago, Lollapalooza
