In anticipation of the forthcoming release of his highly anticipated debut album In Colour (released June 2 on Young Turks), Jamie xx has announced details of the In Colour Tour. The extensive set of global headline dates features Jamie's biggest solo shows yet, taking in the likes of New York's Terminal and London's O2 Brixton Academy venues. The full tour is listed below.
In addition, Jamie will be performing at festivals around the world over the coming month, including the likes of Sonar (Spain), Hard Summer (Los Angeles), Melt (Berlin), Pitchfork (Chicago), Rock En Seine (Paris), Parklife, Wildlife, Bestival, Greenman and Reading & Leeds (all UK).
Jamie xx also today reveals the video to In Colour album opener "Gosh". Directed by Erik Wernquist, the video can be seen right now BELOW. "Gosh" is already a firm favorite among fellow DJs and fans alike, having first been premiered alongside lead single "Loud Places (ft. Romy)."
The release of In Colour comes on the back of an incredible six year creative period for Jamie xx, which has seen him alternate effortlessly between his role as founding member and producer of The xx, and creator of more electronic and club orientated music as Jamie xx. A string of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single "Far Nearer," remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Florence &The Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus We're New Here - Jamie's seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron's final studio album - hinted at what was to come. With In Colour - a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations with The xx band mates Romy Madley Croft ("Seesaw" and "Loud Places") and Oliver Sim ("Stranger In A Room"), Young Thug and Popcaan ("Good Times") and Four Tet ("Seesaw") - Jamie delivers his definitive artistic statement.
