Since her first critically-acclaimed track “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, Charlotte Aitchinson aka Charli XCX has released a plethora of singles, mixtapes, and psychedelic pop culture collage videos, culminating with new release CRASH.
Sometimes the artist says it better than anyone else can, so from the press release, in Charli XCX’s own words…
"Today I, the iconic global pop star Charli XCX, am announcing CRASH, my highly-anticipated forthcoming album, releasing 18th March 2022. This is the fifth and final album in my record deal.
"I have also released 'New Shapes' featuring Caroline Polachek and Christine And The Queens, and am announcing my European and North American tour, with tickets available for presale from 10th November. 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."
