Jamie Smith, also known as Jamie xx, has released "Sleep Sound," his first original release since 2011. Listen to the audio above, via YouTube.
Since then, Smith has been quite busy between performing and producing with his main band The xx and collaborating on Grammy award winning albums by Alicia Keys and Drake. Smith released "Sleep Sound," amidst a 25 day residency in New York City with The xx.
"Sleep Sound" defines his unique blend of electronic and atmospheric lounge music, while at the same time it retains a rhythmic and danceable beat. In the same vein as his last single, "Far Nearer," "Sleep Sound" heavily relies on the use of steel drums and distorted vocal samples.
"Sleep Sound" will be one side of a two track single, paired with another song titled "Girl." You can preorder the single via Young Turks.
Smith has also announced a number of DJ dates in Europe, which you can find at jamiexx.com.
