Jamie from The xx has barely sat still since the huge acclaim heaped on his main band during 2009. He remixed the late Gill Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here in its entirety, and now has further solo plans afoot. He has a single titled “Far Nearer” released today in the U.K., which is backed by the song “Beat For.” You can check out the tracks in the clips below, which both feature the same fastidious attention to detail we’ve come to expect from his work with The xx, although the main track is even more sparse and dubstep-inflected than his prior material. "Beat For" is a little sunnier, with its steel drum riff cut in to break up the darkness, and the whole song lurching along at a supremely disjointed clop.
