Jamie xx teams up with fellow xx members, Four Tet and Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa for R1 Live Lounge Extravaganza

Jamie xx appeared on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show for a very special live lounge session last night.

He was joined by his xx bandmates Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim, as well as Four Tet for ‘Seesaw’ and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa was on drums throughout. “He’s clearly Beyonce now, we're Michelle and Kelly”, they joked.

During the session, the band announced that they're heading back into the studio to work on the new xx album, with Jamie saying “We start again in the studio tomorrow, up until Christmas. It’s going well - we’re just enjoying it.”

‘In Colour’ is hotly tipped by the industry and bookies alike favourite for the 2015 Mercury Prize, Album of the Year. Tune in to BBC Four tomorrow at 9:30pm to watch live.

Catch the session here, Jamie & co start from 1 hour 23mins in.
