James Blake just played this amazing new single from Jamie xx on his most recent mix for BBC Radio 1’s Residency. It’s titled “Girl” but was originally mis-titled “Bloke” by Simon Tallywhacker during the first play in last month’s mix by James.
He corrects himself in the beginning of the show that aired today – you can listen to that entire show by clicking here.
This follows Jamie’s recent single “Sleep Sound” that also spawned an amazing music video created with the deaf as they watched and danced to those with full hearing. Jamie’s band, The XX, have also begun recording a new album with the trio bunking up in Texas and even playing an open mic night to preview new tunes.
UPDATE: Full version was just uploaded on YouTube.
