The xx‘s Romy has just shared another new song from her upcoming album Mid Air, which is due out September 8 via Young, and which she first announced as far back as 2020. Following previous singles “Loveher,” “Strong” and “Enjoy Your Life,” she’s shared “The Sea,” produced by Fred Again and Stuart Price, and featuring a video directed by Mollie Mills.

Mills said in a statement, “Romy always evokes this feeling of euphoria — and with this track specifically touching on wrestles of romance — through a queer lens, it intuitively evoked something about this kind of intertwinement of bodies, both in intimacy and in club culture. I had loosely referenced Louise Bourgeois’ sculpture “The Couple” which actualizes that soul-rupturing entanglement of falling in love — and this is what we wanted to feel in these seascape scenes. This light, blissful, euphoric togetherness that happens alongside these memory slices of euro-heaven.  There’s a power that can live in the simplicity of these domestic moments between two queer bodies too — when I think back to the loves of summers past, the memories I have are always the small details, a billowing curtain or a lovers hair after they shower”

The xx’s last album was 2017’s I See You. Last year, Romy’s bandmate Oliver Sim released Hideous Bastard.
