NEWS: The xx Release Alasdair McLellan-Directed Video For “On Hold”

“On Hold” is taken from The xx’s upcoming album, I See You. The trio have shared an Alasdair McLellan-directed video for their latest single.

The four-minute clip was filmed in Marfa, Texas, and features an appearance from London skater and Dazed 100 star Blondey McCoy. It was shared on the group’s YouTube channel today (November 28), alongside a short note.

“Today we get to share our new video for ‘On Hold’ with you!” they wrote. “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’s latest album, I See You, is set for release on January 13th, and will be accompanied by a world tour (which will include a record-breaking seven-show run at Brixton Academy).
