Next week—on Jan. 13—The xx will release their third album, I See You, via Young Turks. The band has already shared a handful of tracks from the album, including the more club-oriented “On Hold” and “I Dare You,” which they performed on Saturday Night Live last year. Today, they’ve shared another new song to ring in the new year, titled “Say Something Loving.” Prior to the release of the track, the band shared a video of Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim singing the song at karaoke in Tokyo via Twitter. Today, however, the full track is available to stream in its entirety.
