Charli XCX drops new track with Clairo and Yaeji

‘February 2017’ is the latest single from the singer’s upcoming album

Charli XCX has shared another track from her forthcoming album, Charli – this time it’s a shimmering pop collab with Clairo and Yaeji.

“February 2017” was co-written by the three, and produced by A.G. Cook and Planet 1999. “We are all very different artists,” Charli said in a statement, “but coming together on this song felt so special and right.”

Discussing how the track came about, Charli explained: “Clairo and I made a load of songs together in my studio in LA one afternoon at the beginning of the year. None of them were this song but it was so easy to write with her that the second I came up with this idea separately I sent it over to her and she came back with loads of ideas.”

“We sent over this idea to Yaeji too,” the singer continued, “and she did a really beautiful verse. It’s one of the most intimate moments on the album.”

The song is the latest in a long line of collaborative singles from Charli, following tracks with Christine and the Queens, Sky Ferreira, and HAIM. Yesterday it was also revealed that the singer is working on a “psychotic techno song” with Grimes, who told Zane Lowe: “We do have a song together but we haven’t actually finished it. We really need to start – thank you for reminding me.” 

Charli is out next Friday (September 13), and is the artist’s third studio album, and the follow-up to her 2017 mixtape, Pop 2

“These two women are really kind, talented, and brilliant,” Charli said of Clairo and Yaeji. “I enjoy both of their music so much. I’m happy we have this song together.”
