The XX adds second Austin show; Stream new album ‘I See You’ now


UPDATE: The ACL Live website is showing no tickets available for either performance.

On Friday, British alt-pop band the XX dropped the lush and lovely new album “I See You.” The album is the follow up to their 2012 release”Coexist,” and the first work since Jamie XX came into his own as a producer and solo artist with the richly textured 2015 album “In Colour.”

With festival appearances already on the books at Coachella, Bonnaroo and three Latin American Lollapaloozas, 2017 is shaping to be a very big year for the band. Their extensive tour winds through Austin late in the spring with a two-night stand May 10-11 at ACL Live.

Tickets to the show are $45-$50. They go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and they will likely sell out quickly.
