Romy Announces Her Debut Solo Album, ‘Mid Air,’ And Shares The Video For Her Sapphic Dancefloor Anthem, ‘Loveher’

Romy of The XX is gearing up to drop a solo album. Today (June 7) she took to social media to share a video announcing her long-awaited debut album, Mid Air, which is set to arrive this fall.

In the clip, Romy is seen carrying a test pressing of the album, assuring fans, “it’s real, it exists.”

Ahead of the album, Romy has shared a new song called “Loveher,” a sapphic, dance-ready pop track whose arrival feels more timely than ever during Pride Month.

“Lover, you know when they ask me, I’ll tell them / Won’t be ashamed, no / I can’t wait to tell them / Love her, I love her / I love her, I love her,” she sings on the song’s chorus.

In the teaser clip, she notes that “Loveher” is a “really personal song” for her.

“It was the first song that I made that I felt like this is a song for me to sing,” she explained. “This is a project I wanted to do, and I hope you like it.”

In the song’s accompanying visual, Romy dances under colorful spotlights, coming into her most authentic self.
