Wednesday 7th June: Today, Romy announces details of her highly-anticipated debut solo album. The UK singer, songwriter and DJ, who previously released three acclaimed albums with her band The xx, will release Mid Air on 8th September via Young.
Mid Air is an album about celebration, sanctuary and salvation on the dance floor. It’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. It’s a coming-out album in a way, although she came out in her personal life a long time ago, but it’s also a coming-through album – through grief and heartache, towards euphoria.
