The inaugural III Points Festival is set for Oct. 3-5 in the heart of Miami’s up-and-coming Wynwood Art District, and the lineup features Jamie xx of the xx, LCD Soundsystem founder James Murphy, DJ Shadow and more.
The xx’s new black-and-white video for ‘Fiction’ follows frontman/bassist Oliver Sim on a pensive journey through a house and outside, where he sings and sways beneath a full moon. The clip was directed by Young Replicant and shot in Palm Springs, Calif., during the band's recent trek through North America.
The xx have contributed an original song to the soundtrack for the forthcoming film 'The Great Gatsby,' alongside the likes of Beyonce and Florence + the Machine. The xx's track, which they wrote for the film, is called 'Together' (listen below), and it clocks in at five-and-a-half minutes.

The soundtrack, drops May 7 in digital format.
