Miss Info: When I need to go to a lonely, quiet, contemplative place…or maybe is it more accurate to say, when I’m already in a lonely place and I need some music that leaves me there and doesn’t try to drag me to a stupid party to make me feel better…I know I can always rely on those moody Brits of The XX. Now this June, frontman Jamie XX (who has hip hop fans like Drake who also knows the pop music value of sadness) is releasing a solo album called In Colour. Can. Not. Wait. And if this new single “Loud Places,” that Jamie debuted on BBC Radio is any indication…the solo material will be very much in keeping with the xx vibes of previous albums like Coexist (it even features Jamie’s bandmate Romy) and I mean that in the best way possible.

Listen to Jamie XX’s “Loud Places” featuring Romy Madley Croft after the jump…
