Charli XCX is launching a podcast to find the Best Song Ever

With special guests Addison Rae, Barbie Ferreira, Ziwe, Christine and the Queens, Caroline Polachek, and more

Future-pop queen Charli XCX has announced a new podcast series. Titled Best Song Ever, the show features an impressive line-up of friends and celebrity guests, including Addison Rae, Barbie Ferreira, Ziwe, Christine and the Queens, and Caroline Polachek.

Each episode, Charli and her guests will curate their “ultimate life playlist” by answering prompts to find out what the best song is for all different situations and stages of life. Ever wondered what’s the best song to get through a break-up? Or, what tune will always get the party started? Charli nudges her guests into deeper conversations, unearthing never before heard anecdotes, memories, and emotions that come along with their ‘Best Songs Ever’.

“The reason I wanted to do this podcast is because I love talking to people, and I love exploring the emotional connection any person can have with music,” said Charli in a press release.

“Songs that soundtrack specific moments in life can amplify and affect a moment drastically and so I wanted to explore what those moments and songs are with some of my favourite creative people,” she added. “In every conversation I’ve had, I’ve learnt something brand new about each guest and I feel like I’ve gotten to know each and everyone one of them a little bit more.”

That’s not all: Charli XCX is releasing her new single “Good Ones” on September 3. The star last appeared in a glitchy remix of A. G. Cook’s “Xcxoplex”, which was accompanied by some striking strobe-filled visuals. Revisit the video below.
