I See You is the third studio album by British indie dream pop band The xx, released in January 2017 via Young Turks.

The xx are an English minimal indie dream pop band formed in 2005 in Wandsworth, London. The group is currently comprised of Romy Madley Croft (guitar, vocals), Oliver Sim (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Jamie Smith, also known as Jamie xx (production, electronics, keyboards, percussion). The group released its debut album xx, in 2009. The album was a commercial and critical success and was ranked highly on many best of 2009 lists, including number one on the list compiled by The Guardian and second for NME. In 2010, the band won the Mercury Music Prize for its debut album. Their second studio album Coexist was released in 2012 and topped the album charts in the UK.

I See You was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London, and is characterised by a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach, than the previous two albums. The album was produced by Jamie xx and Rodaidh McDonald, who is a producer and executive at XL Recordings, the label that distributes The xx catalogue. 

The album received universal acclaim upon release with Metacritic assigning a normalised rating of 85 out of 100 based on 31 reviews. Uncut reviewer Sam Richards wrote ..."the band expanded their horizons without sacrificing any of the emotional intimacy that makes them one of the most compelling acts around".

The album debuted at #1 on the UK Albums charts and has reached #2 on the US Billboard 200 and #1 on the Australian ARIA Albums charts to date.

The lead single On Hold was released in November 2016 and has seen a very limited 7" vinyl single release.  Say Something Loving was released as a promotional single in January 2017.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  On HoldSay Something LovingI Dare You and Replica.
