The xx recently announced that they will release their long-awaited third album, I See You, early next year, and in support of the upcoming LP, the band was the musical guest on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live.

The trio played their new single, "On Hold," for their first performance, but for their second, they debuted a brand new song titled "I Dare You."  While "On Hold" starts off slow and then blossoms into an up-tempo, electronic track, "I Dare You" finds them showcasing a more pop-leaning melody. 

Watch their performances above and below, and look for I See You on January 13.
