XO Premieres Bittersweet “U & I”

“There’s something endearing about the idea of two people in two different places thinking about each other simultaneously.”

June 02, 2015

Last month, 19-year-old British producer XO introduced his upcoming release The Ethereal Experience with the pert and summery "Flames of a Phoenix." Today, he shares a second track from the project, "U & I," a bittersweet back-and-forth between exes that features Shay Lia. "The song essentially demonstrates that we're only human and our desire for someone of the past isn't something we should be embarrassed by or ashamed of," XO told The FADER. "There's something endearing about the idea of two people in two different places thinking about each other simultaneously. I wanted to make this apparent throughout the track, hence the male/female vocal juxtaposition."

The Ethereal Experience ​is out July 20 via He Loves You Not Recordings.
