Confirming that her fifth album ‘Crash’ will be arriving on 18th March, Charli XCX is celebrating the news by sharing ‘New Shapes’ with Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens, as well as announcing tour dates!
“I, CHARLI XCX AM ANNOUNCING MY 5TH STUDIO ALBUM: CRASH - OUT 18TH MARCH,” a press release reads.”I AM ALSO RELEASING ONE OF THE MOST EXQUISITE TRACKS FROM THE ALBUM ALONGSIDE THE TOUR DATES - ALTHOUGH HONESTLY, ALL THE TRACKS ARE TOTALLY DIVINE.
“‘NEW SHAPES’ FEATURES MY DEMONICALLY TALENTED FRIENDS CAROLINE POLACHEK AND CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS.
“I SUMMONED UP DEATON CHRIS ANTHONY AND LINUS WIKLUND FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL TO PRODUCE IT.”
Continuing, she adds, “If you don’t stream New Shapes or purchase tickets to the tour you will most definitely burn in hell.
“The announcement of CRASH follows my latest single, ‘Good Ones’, a track signalling a new chapter for me in which I embraced all that the life of a pop figurehead has to offer in today’s world - celebrity, obsession and global hits.
“I was able to possess and persuade an incredible group of producers and collaborators to contribute to CRASH by using my femme fatale powers and a multitude of dark spells and curses. Some of these include A. G. Cook, George Daniel, Deaton Chris Anthony, Lotus IV, Caroline Polachek, Christine and the Queens, Oscar Holter, Digital Farm Animals, Rina Sawayama, Ian Kirkpatrik, Jason Evigan, Justin Raisen, Ariel Rechtshaid, Ilya, Oneohtrix Point Never, Jon Shave and Mike Wise. They will all remain locked in my basement forever.”
