The xx, who have been working hard on their follow-up to 2012's Coexist, at least since August, have finally entered the studio to record the new album that's seemingly on the way, according to an in-studio photo that the band has shared on their Instagram account.
The photo's caption reads "Winter studio hibernation. xx The xx" hinting to fans that they have finally started to hunker down and get to work on the next yet-to-be-titled record, which will serve as the band's third overall full-length.
The indie-pop trio's frontman Jamie xx is just coming off of a very successful year due to the release of his phenomenal debut solo album, In Colour, which has achieved worldwide recognition for being one of the best albums of the year.
His xx bandmates Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim both contributed to the solo release, both featured on its tracks "Stranger in a Room" and "Loud Places", even performing the the second of the two on Seth Meyers together back in June.

The band has been sharing studio updates throughout the year (below) via social media, but this most recent one (above) should hint that the record's release is impending, luckily for fans, who have been excited ever since the band shared a glittery announcement. Jamie xx had originally shared the news of the new album back in May of 2014, stating "Coexist was difficult to make at times, but our first album was just as difficult too. All albums are difficult to make, and I'm sure the next one will be as well."
We have had a great few weeks recording more of our new album. Big thank you for everything as always, Rodaidh McDonald! xx The xx A photo posted by The xx (@thexx) on Mar 29, 2015 at 6:08am PDT
We have been writing and recording in Los Angeles. Being in this city has been another completely different experience for us and we are so excited about what we have created here. xx The xx A photo posted by The xx (@thexx) on Dec 9, 2014 at 3:35pm PST
