George Xylouris and Jim White reconvene as Xylouris White for their third album

Xylouris White have announced details of their third album set for release in January via Bella Union. You can check out lead track 'Only Love' above right now.

The new album, entitled Mother sees Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White team up for the third time following on from 2016's Black Peak. The new album has been named by the pair to denote 'new life'.

As Xylouris says, "Mother is the extension of Ghosts and Black Peak. Three things, all part of a whole. Goats are mothers, Zeus was raised on Amaltheia's milk, Black Peak is Mother's Earth... Mother Earth is the mother of everything."

The pair also say that a theme of simplicity and child-like innocence runs through the album. Mother is out on January 19.
