In the past year we've done major features on both Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie Smith of The XX's burgeoning solo career. Not long before either of those stories, Smith got a hold of the acapellas and crafted an entirely new album around the vocals. It's been talked about for what seems like forever (and in internet time might actually be forever), and now it's here. Next Thursday, December 16th XL Recordings and Young Turks are hosting a private listening party for the record in New York. Go hang out, hear some amazing jams and then make all your friends hate you by bragging about it until it inevitably leaks onto the internet. Hit us in the comments and let us know if you want to go and remember to use a real email address so we can let you know if you won.
