OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
September 6th - Charli XCX, the vanguard of popular music, teams up with pop phenomenons Clairo and Yaeji to release new track February 2017, a melancholic introspection of regret and a plea of reconciliation following a disintegrated romance. February 2017 is the latest single taken from XCX’s upcoming album Charli - out September 13th.
‘Collaborating with Yaeji and Clairo was really fun and unique. We are all very different artists but coming together on this song felt so special and right. 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 and she did a really beautiful verse. It sounds so intimate. It’s one of the most intimate moments on the album. We shot this artwork in Barcelona.
These two women are really kind, talented and brilliant. I enjoy both of their music so much. I’m happy we have this song together.’ - Charli XCX
The release of February 2017 follows Charli XCX’s announcement of her tour Charli LIVE which opens September 20th for an impressive 43 dates across both sides of the Atlantic including a show at London’s O2 Brixton Academy for a momentous October 31st Halloween show.
The art of collaboration is at the heart of the album, a verified saviour of pop, Charli seamlessly binds musical genres from the vast pop spectrum. With Executive Production by Charli XCX and A. G. Cook, collaborators include Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, Haim, Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Sky Ferreira, Clairo and Yaeji. Charli teamed with AR makeup artist Ines Alpha to design her artworks with a goal of dismantling classic beauty ideals, a pairing which resulted in her striking album cover.
