There aren't many albums more feverishly anticipated in 2012 than the XX's sophomore effort. Clearly, the band realizes this, and decided to give us all a Christmas present. Quietly released on youtube and their blog, the demo is a hushed intimate affair. The track is notably missing Jaime's signature room filling drums, but still manages to produce that spine tingling effect that only the XX can create.
Open Eyes (Demo) - The XX
At this point, there isn't an official release date, album title or any word on if we'll see a finished version of Open Eyes on the album.
