Happy Leo season! It’s the best astrological season of the year and Charli XCX’s new album is out in a month, so what better time for the British pop genius to drop new episodes of her Beats 1 radio show The Candy Shop? Fresh off releasing her Christine and the Queens collaboration “Gone,” Charli has dropped two episodes of the hour-long show, the first featuring an interview with Clairo and Rostam and the second featuring an interview with Christine and the Queens frontwoman Heloise Letissier on how “Gone” came together.
Both episodes are interspersed with songs chosen by Charli, including both new Jai Paul tracks, songs by Laura Les and 100 gecs, and Charli originals like “Gone” and the Diplo collaboration “Spicy.” In the interview with Rostam and Clairo, the trio discuss Clairo’s upcoming debut album Immunity, as well as Rostam’s solo record. Clairo features on Charli’s new album Charli, which is out in August. Listen to The Candy Shop above.
