Iconic pop pioneer Charli XCX has announced plans to release her new album ‘Charli’ on September 13th and it comes alongside a forthcoming world tour.
The art of collaboration is at the heart of ‘Charli’, as 13 different artists join Charli on the 15-track album. Those to feature include Troye Sivan, HAIM, Kim Petras, Christine and the Queens, Brooke Candy, and Big Freedia.
With Executive Production by A.G. Cook and Charli XCX, ‘Charli’ will feature the previously-released ‘1999’ with Sivan and ‘Blame It On Your Love’ featuring Lizzo. The video for the latter has been released today to celebrate the album news.
Directed by Bradley & Pablo and filmed in New York, the video for ‘Blame It On Your Love’ embraces the imperfection and otherworldly, an undeniable tribute to love with no boundaries. The video provides a liberating visual to complement the progressive hooks and disruptive vocals which the track is now known for.
The pop star teamed up with AR makeup artist Ines Alpha to design the artwork for ‘Charli’, with a goal of dismantling classic beauty ideals, a pairing which resulted in her striking album cover.
