The xx hasn’t released a new album in over five years, but according to bassist/vocalist Oliver Sim, that streak won’t last forever.

Speaking with Consequence’s Kyle Meredith with… podcast, Sim declares that the “Crystalised” trio “definitely” plans to continue putting out new material.

“The xx will always be my home and will always be my priority,” Sim says. “Normally I wouldn’t speak for [bandmates] Romy [Madley Croft] and Jamie [xx], but I know they feel the same.”

Sim just dropped his debut solo album, Hideous Bastard, last month, and he’s “excited’ to see how that, as well as Croft and Jamie’s own solo material, will impact the direction of The xx’s music going forward.

“How is this gonna change the band?” Sim wonders. “What have we all learned independently?”

Before you start getting too excited, Sim notes that “nothing is recorded at the moment,” but does confirm that “There is more music from The xx, definitely.”
