Charli XCX is releasing a new album, simply titled Charli, on September 13 via Atlantic. Now she has shared another song from it, “February 2017.” This one features Clairo and Yaeji. Listen below, followed by Charli XCX’s upcoming tour dates.

Charli had this to say about the song in a press release: “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.”

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.

Charli features a slew of other special guests, including Lizzo, Troye Sivan, and more. 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).

In July HAIM shared a brand new song, “Summer Girl,” via a video directed by previous collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood). It was one of our Songs of the Week.
