September 17th - Iconic pop pioneer Charli XCX has reunited with global pop sensation Troye Sivan on latest track 2099, and its exhilarating music video. 2099 is the duos first collaboration since their hit single 1999, and the latest single taken from XCX’s new album Charli - released Friday 13th September.
The Bradley & Pablo directed music video sees the British pop trailblazer and her recurring heart-throb collaborator Troye Sivan effortlessly driving into future times together on jet skis. In contrast to 1999’s nostalgic gaze at the past, the 2099 video is a cinematic embodiment of the track’s futuristic sound.
“This is the best video ever. I’m so happy I made it. Troye and I are so talented. Thank you to Bradley and Pablo for directing and also to Troye, who trained so hard for the shoot. Enjoy.” - Charli XCX
The release of 2099 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 sold-out show at London’s O2 Brixton Academy for a momentous October 31st Halloween show.
