Charli XCX released a new album, simply titled Charli, last Friday via Atlantic (stream it here). Now she has shared a video for the album’s “2099” that features Charli and guest vocalist Troye Sivan riding jet-skis. Also, last night she performed the album’s “Gone” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier, who also guests on the studio version of the song). Plus Fallon interviewed Charli XCX. Check it all out below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Directing duo Bradley & Pablo directed the “2099” video. Charli had this to say about it in a press release: “This is the best video ever. I’m so happy I made it. Troye and I are so talented. Thank you to Bradley & Pablo for directing and also to Troye, who trained so hard for the shoot. Enjoy.”

Last week we posted our review of Charli and you can read that here.

In July Charli XCX shared Charli‘s “Gone,” via a video for the track. “Gone” is a collaboration with Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier), who also featured in the video. “Gone” was one of our Songs of the Week. Earlier this month she shared the album’s “Cross You Out,” which features Sky Ferreira. Then Charli XCX shared a new song not featured on the album, “Miss U” (instead it’s on the soundtrack to season three of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why). Then she shared another Charli track, “Warm,” that featured HAIM. Then she shared “February 2017,” which featured Clairo and Yaeji. Then she shared yet another song from Charli, “2099,” featuring Troye Sivan, who previously collaborated with Charli on the Charli song “1999.”

Charli is her third album and her first one in five years, since 2014’s Sucker. But in the meantime she has released various mixtapes and singles, including the 2017 hit “Boys,” which isn’t included on the album (although some other previous singles, such as “1999” and “Blame It On Your Love,” are on Charli).
