Charli XCX Announces New Album, Charli, Due Out September 13th

Charli XCX announced that her new album, Charli, is due out September 13th. It features both 1999 with Troye Sivan and Blame It On Your Love with Lizzo. Neither of these songs holds a candle to any of the tracks on either of Charli’s last two albums, Number One Angel and Pop 2, so I am cautiously optimistic about this album at best. It is extremely reassuring to hear that PC Music mastermind A.G. Cook is executive producing the album, as he was the executive producer of Pop 2. Hopefully 1999 and Blame It On Your Love are the compromises that Charli had to make with her label and she’ll be allowed to do what she wants on the rest of this album. I can already imagine Click with Kim Petras and Tommy Cash will be a standout, and I am excited to hear Sky Ferrera on Cross You Out.

There is also something so striking about the cover. Charli looks like an andriod that has not yet been given life. Her naked figure almost comes off as medical on the cover, theres something robotic about it all. Never have I seen a less erotic photograph of a naked woman, and yet she looks absolutely stunning. Charli has seemed like the pop star that is living 200 years in the future and this album cover continues that trend.

That being said I still will never understand why Charli didn’t push Girls Night Out harder and why it isn’t on the album. I will go to my grave convinced that song could have been a number one jam. It still can be! Let me do the video and throw it as a bonus track on the album and it’ll be charting in no time. Until that happens everyone pray to your respective gods that this album defies the singles and is Pop 2 2. Catch the track list and her new tour dates below!
