Romy may currently be best known for her work as one-third of British indie electronic group The xx but sheâ€™ll soon be dropping off her long-awaited solo album. The musician and DJ has shared that her first LP, Mid Air, is due for release this fall.
The album is billed as a â€œcoming-outâ€ project of sorts, but also about â€œcoming throughâ€ grief and heartache.
â€œMid Air is an album about celebration, sanctuary and salvation on the dance floor. Itâ€™s an album that deals with love, grief, relationships, identity and sexuality and is a love letter to the queer clubs where Romy found community and connection,â€ a press release describes.
In tandem with the announcement, Romy has followed up a recent string of single releases with a new track from Mid Air, â€œLoveher,â€ which was produced by fellow British DJ Fred again..
â€œFred asked me, who could this be for?â€ Romy explained. â€œAnd I tentatively saidâ€¦ â€˜maybe me?â€™â€
Stream Romyâ€™s new song â€œLoveher.â€ Mid Air is out in full on September 8.
