Jamie xx – “Girl”

Every month or so, James Blake shows up on BBC Radio 1 to host his Residency show, where he debuts new songs and remixes and does some interviews and talks a lot. Last month, he played “Bloke,” which he said was a new track from the mysterious “Simon Tallywhacker,” an artist who had no internet presence before the show and no record of actually existing. Blake admitted at the start of this month’s show that the track was actually a new one from Jamie xx. The track’s actually called “Girl” and will serve as as the flipside to his new “Sleep Sound” 12″. Blake ends up talking over a lot of the song but you can hear it at the very beginning of his mix right here.

UPDATE: Here’s the official audio…

“Girl/Sleep Sound” is out 5/5 on Young Turks.
