With the release of his second full length album fast approaching, Jamie XX has released new single 'I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Time)' before In Colour drops next Friday May 29th.
In the last 6 years, the producer who hails from London has balanced his role as the founding member of The xx, as well as the creation of his own solo material - which allows him to produce more club orientated and electronic stuff. The album will feature collaborations with his bandmates Romy Madley and Olivia Sim from The xx.
His latest release 'I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Time)' features Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan and rapper Young Thug. Thugger's appearance on the track has redeemed him from his subpar release 'Barter 6'. Jamie has used Young Thug's distinctive high-pitch singing to his advantage. Though his verses rarely make sense - visual lyricism is all part of Young Thug's artistry. If there is one thing i'm certain of, it's that this song is about to take over. The tropi-pop track will make even the most placid person want to go crazy and have a good time.
