Next week, UK producer and xx member Jamie xx will release his debut album In Colour, via Young Turks. It’s a rich collection of beat-laden jams, which run the gamut from darker, atmospheric material in the vein of Burial or his other gig in The xx, to more upbeat Balearic beat tracks that are highly likely to soundtrack your summer. (“I Know There’s Gonna Be” is one of those tracks, just for what it’s worth.) And if you can’t wait to hear it, well, you’re in luck. The album is streaming right now via iTunes.
