God bless Charli XCX!
The Brit-pop songstress has announced that she’s got a brand new mixtape called Pop 2 coming next week (December 15), including confirmed appearances from Carly Rae Jepsen, CupcakKe, MØ, Kim Petras, Mykki Blanco, Brooke Candy, Tommy Cash and Caroline Polachek. It follows “Boys” and Charli‘s very first mixtape, Number 1 Angel, which was released earlier this year.
Out first taste of Pop 2 comes in the form of “Out Of My Head,” an airy romp featuring Tove Lo and ALMA, produced by Number 1 Angel collaborators SOPHIE and A.G. Cook. It’s another big, left-centre pop moment that sees the fierce ladies trading sweet lines across infectious hi-hats, glittering synths, and a propulsive dance pulse. “I’m out of my, out of my head/ Out of my head/ Please, get out of my, out of my, out of my/ Out of my head,” ALMA chants in-between Tove and Charli‘s earworm hooks.
The song shimmers with a classic kind of dance-pop sheen but manages to infuse some modern flare as well, making this collaboration, quite simply, a no-brainer. Consider your #NewMusicFriday complete – YOU’RE WELCOME!
