Jamie xx – “Far Nearer” b/w “Beat For”

Today Glasgow’s Numbers label releases the first properly solo single from the xx’s producer and LDN electronic music leading light Jamie xx. The album art (above) recalls Jamie’s interesting remix LP of Gil Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here, while the a-side is the finalized version of the tropical, steel-drummed/pitch-bent vocal “Far Nearer” that we heard previewed in February. That track’s sun is offset by the shadowy b-side “Beat For,” both of which are streaming below (check nmbrs.net for info on vinyl/digial purchase):
