Charli XCX has promised “five months of new music” leading up to the release of her long-awaited, long-delated third record, and so far, it seems like she wasn’t lying. Aside from “Blame It On Your Love,” the Lizzo collab that dropped with the announcement of the as-yet-untitled XCX3, Charli has also dropped “Spicy,” a Spice Girls cover with Diplo, and now she’s debuted a new collaboration with Christine and the Queens at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Spain.
Charli stans — who, because their queen’s demos seem to leak so damn much, tend to have catalogues of all her unreleased tracks ahead of time — are referring to the song as “Gone.” Given that Charli’s hitting the campaign trail hard right now, it’s probably safe to assume we’ll be hearing this one on her new record. Charli has been engaging in some interesting extra-curriculars, too: the pop band she formed, Nasty Cherry, just released a new single, and she performed "We Can't Stop" with Miley Cyrus at the BBC1 Big Weekend. Watch footage of “Gone” below.
