Just over a week after performing new single "On Hold" on SNL, The XX have unveiled the first video from their forthcoming third album I See You. The video was shot in Marfa, Texas which is a 'very special place' for the band. The reason why isn't clear, but the band apparently recorded part of the album there. One thing's for sure is that I'm starting to take more of a liking to the song the more that I hear it. "On Hold" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play. I See You is released on January 13th and you can pre-order it now on Apple Music and Google Play.

"Unstable" is the first single from singer songwriter Zak Abel's debut album Only When We're Naked. The song is a lovely unique blend of RnB, Indie and afrobeat and is a great way to start the anticipation for Zak's album. Zak also recently released a remix of the song featuring Maleek Berry aswell as an acoustic video. "Unstable" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Soundcloud's repeat function was made especially for songs like this. Dan Caplen's cover of The Streets' classic "Blinded By The Lights" is brilliant. It's so good infact that it's today's Song of The Day. Dan's rendition is alot more soulful than The Streets' original making the it feel alot more emotive. Play it now and then play it again - I dare you not to. Dan Caplen's cover of The Streets' "Blinded By The Lights" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.
