Charli XCX has today unveiled two new tracks – “Focus” and “No Angel” – available now on all DSPs.
Loveable pop anthems “Focus” and “No Angel” are the follow-ups to Charli’s trap-infused, comeback track “5 In The Morning”, released last month. Firm fan favourite “Focus” is produced by Charli’s long-time collaborator A.G. Cook alongside Jack and Coke and was debuted at Arizona’s FORM Festival in May. “No Angel” is produced by Invisible Men (ZAYN, Iggy Azalea) with additional production from SOPHIE. Charli’s increased musical output points to an exciting year ahead of the highly-acclaimed pop innovator as she is set to release a constant flow of music over the coming months. Since its unveiling in May, “5 In The Morning” has entered playlists across the world and has exceeded 6 million streams in just a few weeks.
Last week saw Charli bring her highly-acclaimed ‘Pop 2’ mixtape show to both Paris and her native UK from America with a phenomenal, charismatic performance at London’s Village Underground to a rapturous crowd. The show received rave reviews across the board - The Independent’s five star review heralded Charli as “pop dynamite” and i-D stated her Pop 2 mixtape was “a work of art”. During the same week, XCX took to the stage of Wembley Stadium, twice, as she continues her support run on Taylor Swift’s global Reputation tour.
Joining the dots between the margins and the mainstream, XCX has leant her vocals on an array of brilliant tracks over the past few months and solidified her stature as one of the most in-demand collaborators on the global pop scene. She currently features on Rita Ora’s “Girls” alongside Cardi B and Bebe Rexha; Tove Lo’s “Bitches” with Alma, Icona Pop and Elliphant; as well as Lil Xan’s “Moonlight” – the latter was unveiled last week.
