Charli XCX has announced a new collaboration called 'After the Afterparty' featuring rapper Lil Yachty
Charli XCX has unveiled her new single 'After the Afterparty'.
The 24-year-old pop beauty has teamed up with American rapper Lil Yachty for her first new music since her EP 'Vroom Vroom' - which was released early this year - and fans can expect to download the new track on October 28, according to a listing on iTunes.
The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker - who's last record was 2014's 'Sucker' - has teamed up with both of her longtime collaborators SOPHIE and Stargate for her third studio album.
The 'Doing It' singer said she got them together because she wanted to mix their different styles to make a record of "progressive pop music".
On her decision to work with SOPHIE - who produced her 'Vroom Vroom' - she previously said: "I didn't want to make just an album with SOPHIE, and I didn't want to make just an album with Stargate.
"I wanted to make an album with SOPHIE and Stargate. Sure, some of SOPHIE's records are a little harsh and off-the-wall, but the goal is to be making progressive pop music."
Charli brought them together because she knew they would gel well, despite her label wanting her to work with Stargate - a production duo comprised of Mikkel Storleer Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen - most known for their work with Beyonce, Rihanna and Ne-Yo.
Charli feels it is important for artists to "shake things up" from time to time and has been incredibly inspired by some of her collaborators.
She previously said: "I think it always needs a shake up and I think multiple artists do that but I want to push it.
"I've been collaborating with people from PC Music so that's been very inspiring for me - the way they think about music and the way that they create music and transferring that into like a more pop realm is something that is cool and yeah, it's next level! I'm not really saying too much about it right now because I just want it to talk for itself. And it will."
