Jamie xx and Robyn Share New Song “Life”: Listen

Jamie xx has shared another new song from In Waves, his long-anticipated new album. The track is called “Life” and it boasts a guest feature from Swedish pop star Robyn. Give it a listen below.

In Waves arrives September 20. Jamie xx’s follow-up to his beloved solo debut, 2015’s In Colour, includes the singles “Treat Each Other Right” and “Baddy on the Floor.” Discussing “Life” in a press statement, the producer said:

I made this track pretty fast (for me) and I loved it from day one. When I first heard Robyn’s vocal it was at 6 a.m. after finishing playing at Pacha in Ibiza, it was the perfect moment. Robyn and I have spent time working together and hanging out for some years now, it’s always a joy and always inspiring, I’m so glad and grateful that she is a part of In Waves. Thank you, Robyn, for bringing this track to life!

Robyn added, “I just want to see how ‘Life’ gets people dancing this summer. I can’t wait for that. Jamie is such a brilliant creator, I’m excited to be part of his album.”

This summer, Jamie xx will return to Chicago to headline Pitchfork Music Festival, which takes place July 19-21. Also on this year’s lineup are Alanis Morissette, Black Pumas, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jessie Ware, Jai Paul, Brittany Howard, De La Soul, Unwound, 100 Gecs, and more. Tickets are now on sale.
