The Xx Xx Album Hitl

In Colour is the debut studio album by English producer Jamie xx, released on 29 May 2015 by Young Turks. The album was composed during a five-year period while a member of the indie pop band the xx, starting with his production on xx in 2009. After starting his solo career with the remix album We're New Here (2011) and singles like "All Under One Roof Raving" (2014), he was intent on making the album something of a departure from his previous work and genre. The album features guest vocals from fellow the xx members Romy and Oliver Sim, as well as from Young Thug and Popcaan. The album produced five singles: "Girl" and "Sleep Sound" as a double-single on 5 May 2014, "Loud Places" on 27 March 2015, "Gosh" on 4 May, and "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" on 22 May.

The Xx Xx Album Hitl

In Colour received widespread acclaim from critics. It debuted at number three on the UK Albums Chart, selling 19,255 copies in its first week.[1] In the United States, the album entered the Billboard 200 at number 21 and topped the Dance/Electronic Albums, with first-week sales of 19,000 copies.[2] It was nominated for the 2015 Mercury Prize, MasterCard British Album of the Year at the 2016 Brit Awards and Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 58th Grammy Awards.

Smith produced the xx's debut album, xx (2009), "by accident" after sessions with other producers including Diplo were unsuccessful.[3] Later in 2009, Smith began his solo career when he remixed Florence and the Machine's "You've Got the Love".[4] Smith was invited by XL Recordings owner Richard Russell to remix Gil Scott-Heron's 2010 album I'm New Here in its entirety. The resulting album, the electronic-based We're New Here, was released in 2011.[3] He released his debut single, the double A-side "Far Nearer" / "Beat For" in June 2011.[5] The following year, Smith used samples from We're New Here on Drake's "Take Care", which became a US top-10 hit.[6] In Colour was announced on 23 March 2015.[7]

The album was composed over five years, with Smith struggling to finish the music once he had started making it.[3] Smith wanted to make an album that sounded like it did not come from any particular era.[8] It is an electronica[9] and dance[10] record, blending styles of UK garage,[11][12] house[12] and rave.[12] Smith used vocal samples from British media sources that he had encountered while away on tour. The vocal sample at the beginning of "Girl" is taken from an episode of the British drama television series Top Boy, and "Gosh" features a clip from a BBC Radio 1 programme called One in the Jungle that was never aired.[8] "Seesaw" was recorded in collaboration with Kieran Hebden.[4] "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" is based around a sample of The Persuasions' 1971 song "Good Times" from their album Street Corner Symphony,[4] which Smith had bought in Detroit.[8] The song features vocals by American rapper Young Thug and Jamaican musician Popcaan, which were recorded separately and spliced together by Smith.[8]

The first single from the album, "Sleep Sound", premiered on 27 March 2014.[13] A music video for "Sleep Sound", directed by Sofia Mattioli and featuring 13 members of the Manchester Deaf Centre, was released on 10 April 2014.[14] The second single from the album, "Girl", was released on 18 April 2014. "Girl" and "Sleep Sound" were later released as a double A-side on 5 May 2014.[15] On 25 March 2015, the tracks "Gosh" and "Loud Places" premiered on Annie Mac.[16]

On 26 May 2015, In Colour was streamed in its entirety on iTunes.[20] In Colour was released on 29 May 2015 in digital, CD, LP and a limited deluxe triple-LP edition. The deluxe edition of the album, cut on coloured vinyl, featured two exclusive instrumental tracks.[21]

Eyes and tears 03:14 buy track 10. Doveman 03:43 buy track about India Electric Company's debut album, The Girl I Left Behind Me, is the culmination of a year of writing and recording. Drawing on a theme of transience, the album explores non places, a sense of not belonging, the highs and lows of being on the fringes of society and all the associated raw emotions. Inspired by folk themes from Eastern Europe, Africa, through to Latin America, The Girl I Left Behind Me travels through diverse styles including gypsy jazz and Irish reels, with references including Buena Vista Social Club, The XX, Thomas Bartlett and Joanna Newsom. Whilst inevitably drawing on their own experiences as touring musicians, the lyrics borrow from Marvell, W.H. Auden, Ted Hughes and an 18th Century sea shanty. Their heritage and timelessness provide a shoulder for I.E.C.s explorations to lean on. Using traditional instruments in unconventional ways yields a fresh, contemporary counterpoint to the roots that bind them. Subbass accordions, prepared pianos, 16 part string arrangements and a large array of hand made percussion sections take the songs to Gullivarian lands whilst giving the sparser arrangements a contrasting home of their own. The acoustics of the Devonshire barn in which the album was recorded provides a unique sonic purity and unification. Sometimes decadent, sometimes introverted, The Girl I Left Behind Me finds a place far from the madding crowd. $(".tralbum-about").last().bcTruncate(TruncateProfile.get("tralbum_about"), "more", "less"); credits released March 30, 2015 license all rights reserved tags Tags folk fusion United Kingdom Shopping cart total USD Check out about India Electric Co.

Passing from one room to another, the young dandy arrived at last inthat one in which Mademoiselle Georgette had taken refuge; he discoveredher seated in an easy-chair and turning the leaves of an album that layon a table near by. The girl's utter lack of ceremony, and her perfectease of manner in that elegant salon, astonished Edward, who gazed ather for several seconds, then said:
