Romy of The xx has announced the release of her debut solo album Mid Air and shared its third single “Loveher.” Working alongside producers Fred again.., Stuart Price, and bandmate Jamie xx, Romy is set to release Mid Air on September 8 via Young. She has also announced a handful of festival appearances over the summer. Listen to the song below followed by the album’s tracklist and upcoming tour dates.

Mid Air is a collective of celebration, sanctuary, and salvation on the dance floor. According to a press release, it’s an album which deals with love, grief, relationships, identity and sexuality and is a love letter to the queer clubs where Romy found community and connection. It holds creedence for Romy, as it’s a coming-out album and a coming-through album, where she breaks through towards euphoria in the end.

The album embodies so much of the clubbing scene where Romy was able to derive lyrics off of her own escapism, sadness and melancholy. The song “Loveher,” which acts as both the album opener and first song written for the record, depicts a proud and queer love story. “Fred asked me, who could this be for?” Romy says “and I tentatively said…‘maybe me?’”

Romy has previously released two other singles from the same album “Enjoy Your Life” and “Strong” which Romy describes “as emotional music to dance to.”
