UPDATE: As it turns out, “Alba” is the same song as “Sunrise,” the track for that Continuum short film. Whoops.
When last we heard from the xx’s production mastermind Jamie xx, he’d recorded “Sunrise,” a track for the soundtrack of the experimental short film Continuum. And while Jamie doesn’t seem any closer to dropping his solo debut, he does have a new track for us. His fellow producer Jon Hopkins debuted the new track “Alba” in a recent mix for BBC Radio 1, and it’s a soft and fluttery downtempo instrumental. As Consequence Of Sound points out, you can hear it by heading over here and skipping to the 58:00 mark.
