Charli XCX Announces Her New Album ‘Crash’ With A Caroline Polachek And Christine And The Queens Collab

In recent months, Charli XCX has dropped some hints about what her next album is going to be like and when it’s coming, but she hadn’t actually offered any concrete info. That changed today, though: Charli has announced that her next album is called Crash and it’s set to drop on March 18, 2022.

She hasn’t shared a tracklist yet, but pre-order listings note the album will have 12 tracks and among them are “Good Ones” and “New Shapes,” the latter of which she shared today and which features Christine And The Queens and Caroline Polachek.

In a recent interview, Charli explained how “Good Ones” is reflective of Crash as a whole, saying, “It definitely sets the palette for the rest of the album. It is heavily ’80s-inspired. There are a lot of uptempo tracks. It’s dark, it’s kind of sexy and sexual and sort of demonic at points, I suppose. But then there are lighter moments, too. But yeah, I think the whole record is about my relationship with relationships and sex and power. But the song itself, I suppose, it’s about falling for a toxic person, being always ready to put myself in the most dangerous positions, just to feel something, which I guess it’s kind of the whole record, but I feel like we’ve all been there at points in life.”

Listen to “New Shapes” above. Charli also announced some 2022 tour dates today, so find those below.
