Charli XCX unveils her new track
Pop innovator, Charli XCX, has today unveiled her brand new track 5 in the Morning – listen here.
One of the most respected and connected songwriters in pop’s rainbow spectrum; Charli XCX has delivered another bleeding-edge pop moment in 5 in the Morning. Written by XCX alongside Australia’s Nat Dunn (Marshmello & Anne-Marie Friends) and Cleo Tighe (Jess Glynne), the track’s trap-infused production comes from Invisible Men (ZAYN, Iggy Azalea). At the apex of her field and experimenting from the margins to the mainstream, Charli XCX has been working solidly in the studio over the past months, the fruit of which will be rolled out over the Australian winter with a series of releases. Currently supporting Taylor Swift on her world ‘Reputation’ tour alongside Camilla Cabello, Charli and co will finally hit Australian stages this October/November after extensive dates in the US, UK & Europe.
Over the course of her remarkable career, Charli XCX has earnt critical acclaim across the globe for not only her forward-thinking musical output, but her refreshing entrepreneurial spirit that has seen her carve her own lane on the global pop circuit. Video director, singer, songwriter, documentary maker, radio host and record label boss; there’s nothing the British 26-year-old can’t turn her hand to. Charlotte Aitchison, aka Charli XCX, is fast becoming one of the hottest creators of her generation and is the award-winning talent behind the ARIA multi platinum Fancy and I Love It and the ARIA double platinum Boom Clap. In 2017, she bookended the year with her ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed mixtapes Number 1 Angel and Pop 2, featured on David Guettaand Afrojack’s global smash, the ARIA platinum Dirty Sexy Money and released her standout summer crush anthem Boys. On the latter, Charli took full creative control across casting, directing and producing the accompanying official video, which not only saw her flip the traditional male gaze on its head, but featured an all-star male cast including Stormzy, Mark Ronson, Diplo, Joe Jonas, Brendon Urie, will.i.am, Riz Ahmed + more, with Charli XCX hailed as a paragon of progressiveness off the back of its release.
Charli has won multiple awards including 2 x Sesac Songwriter of the Year Awards, 2 x Billboard Awards & 1 x YouTube Music Award, alongside nominations at the Grammy’s, BRIT Awards and MTV EMA’s. Not to mention the studio time she’s commanded with the likes of Blondie, Selena Gomez [Charli co-wrote her U.S. No.1 Same Old Love], Gwen Stefani, Benny Blanco, David Guetta, Zara Larsson, Khalid and Diplo, as well as recently taking the reigns as co-executive producer on the forthcoming debut album from Finnish rising star, Alma.
