Charli XCX Releases ‘CRASH’ Deluxe Edition
Charli XCX has released the deluxe edition of her latest album CRASH. It includes four new tracks: Selfish Girl, How Can I Not Know What I Need Right Now, Sorry If I Hurt You. Stream it below.
How Can I…is a collaboration with The 1975 member George Daniel (who also worked on Crash’s title track) while Sorry If I Hurt You was originally meant to be the name of the record.
CRASH came out last week via Atlantic. Charli previewed the album with the singles Good Ones, New Shapes with Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens, Beg For You with Rina Sawayama, Baby, and Every Rule.
CRASH is currently leading the race to top the UK Official Albums Chart. The record is currently the biggest seller on physical formats of the week too – 83% of its total chart sales so far.
Charli recently spoke to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, where she paid tribute to electronic pioneer SOPHIE, “There have been a few times in this album process where I have thought, oh what would SOPHIE think about this? Or what would SOPHIE tell me to do right now? And the answer always is: SOPHIE would just be like, ‘Do your thing, go for it, push yourself.’”
“She was always like, ‘Just sing with your voice. You sound great. Let’s do this like that.’ SOPHIE was just a champion of people that she believed in.
“And no matter what level you were as an artist, if you were a big artist or if you were her friend who was making music with her in her studio and no one else had heard any of the songs at all. She believed in those people.
“She thinks people are stars. And when she thinks you’re a star, she’s not going to let you do yourself an injustice by not going for it.”
