Charli XCX Drops ‘Baby,’ New Song and Video ‘About Great Sex’

Charli XCX has dropped the latest single from her forthcoming album “Crash,” just days before her appearance on “Saturday Night Live” (which was originally scheduled for December but postponed due to omicron) and will perform the song on the show.

According to the announcement, the song, which is accompanied by a video directed by Imogene Strauss and Luke Orlando, is one of the first Charli wrote for the album. The disco-fied song is a collaboration with the brother team of Justin and Jeremiah Raisen (a.k.a. Sad Pony), the former of whom has worked extensively with Yves Tumor, Angel Olsen, Kim Gordon and many others.

“The track is about great sex,” Charli says in the announcement.


“Crash” is scheduled to be released on Atlantic Records on March 18 and, the announcement notes, is the fifth and final album in her record deal.

She kicks off her 21-date North American tour in California on March 26, followed by a 17-date UK and European Tour which starts in Dublin on May 13, with support from Baby Tate, ELIO, Yeule, Magdalena and A. G. Cook. See full tour dates below.
