Charli XCX to Release Her First Album in Nearly Six Years on Sept. 13

In the nearly six years since Charli XCX dropped her sophomore full-length “Sucker,” she has done virtually everything except released a proper third album: She’s dropped two mixtapes, toured, and dropped more one-off singles and collaborations than any sane person could count.

Finally, on Sept. 13, she will release “Charli,” which features guest appearances from Lizzo (see the video for their new tag-team single “Blame It on Your Love” below), Christine and the Queens, Haim, Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Sky Ferreira, Kim Petras, Clairo, Yaeji and Pabllo Vittar. The complete track listing is below.

On Wednesday, Charli took to Twitter to post the either very boastful or hyperbolic statement, “Omg I just listened to my album in the car and cried. It’s so good. I’m so talented. Even just the tracklist written down is a piece of art.” 


Of course, she will support the album’s release with a massive tour. Tommy Genesis, Brooke Candy, Dorian Electra & Allie X will support Charli on select dates  – see full routing below.
