So, Charli XCX is the best.
Her summer was so "Fancy." You already know.
Now, it's safe to say we can all stop calling her a "pop star-in-waiting."
On the heels of all that success, Charli XCX will release her sophomore album this fall. Brilliantly titled Sucker, it's out Oct. 21 via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.
It's a shout-along, ~forget school, let's dance~ anthem, pink and pop and powerful and punk at the same damn time. The song's badass attitude and bass guitar recall Blur's 1997 smash "Song 2."
"The song is inspired by a lot of the things I was listening to whilst in Sweden at the end of last year," Charli told BuzzFeed. "I spent about a month making a punk record and covering songs by Swedish punk bands like Snuffed By The Yakuza and stuff. This song was written when I came out of the other side of that punk phase and translated it into something more pop. Obviously, it's about not giving a fuck."
