The xx Release “On Hold” Video Directed By Alasdair McLellan

The xx today release their video for “On Hold,” the first single from the trio’s highly anticipated third album I See You. The video was shot in Marfa, Texas, where the band wrote and recorded some of I See You, and is directed by acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Alasdair McLellan.

Speaking of the collaboration, The xx say: “Today we get to share our new video for ‘On Hold’ with you! The video is directed by the brilliant Alasdair McLellan, whose work we all adore…It was filmed in Marfa, Texas, a very special place to us, where we wrote and recorded some of our new album. We have a lot of love and respect for the people of the USA, having played hundreds of shows across the country over the past years. We hope this video reflects just some of the warmth and acceptance we have encountered there.”

The xx today also announce that “On Hold” will be available on 7” vinyl.  The limited-edition release will feature an etched B-side and deboss mirri sleeve and is available to purchase HERE

Meanwhile, The xx have set the record for the longest ever run of sold out shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The trio will take over the legendary venue from March 8-15, performing to 35,000 people over seven hometown shows. Tickets for the shows went on general sale on Friday (November 25) and sold out within a day, a feat replicated in cities across the UK and Europe.
