Back in July Charli XCX shared a catchy as hell brand new song, “Boys,” via a video she self-directed (with Sarah McColgan). On December 15 she is releasing a new mixtape, Pop2, via Atlantic. It doesn’t feature “Boys” (she’s probably saving that for her next album), but it does include 10 other tracks, including one she shared today, “Unlock It,” which features German singer Kim Petras and Korean-American singer Jay Park. Listen below, followed by the mixtape’s tracklist. Pop2 also includes “Out of My Head,” which features Tove Lo and ALMA and was shared last Friday and is below too.

Charli XCX released a new mixtape, Number 1 Angel, back in March and her last full-length was 2014’s Sucker. There’s been no word on Charli’s third album, but it is expected next year. Charli XCX recently stopped by Australia’s Triple J radio station to perform “Boys,” but also take part in their “Like a Version” covers series where she has covered “Don’t Delete the Kisses,” by fellow Brits Wolf Alice.

The “boys” in the “Boys” video included Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig, Mac DeMarco, Mark Ronson, Diplo, Rostam, Chromeo, Flume, Portugal. The Man, Jack Antonoff, Wiz Khalifa, D.R.A.M., Kaytranada, Stormzy, Riz Ahmed and Swet Shop Boys, Ty Dolla $ign, Joey Bada$, Charlie Puth, Khalid, Joe Jonas, Carl Barât (The Libertines), Theo Hutchcraft (Hurts), Dan Smith (Bastille), and others. Charli XCX also shared an acoustic version of “Boys” and performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
