Back in July Charli XCX shared a catchy as hell brand new song, “Boys,” via a video she self-directed (with Sarah McColgan). Now she has 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. Wolf Alice released their sophomore album, Visions of a Life, back in September via Dirty Hit/RCA. It was our Album of the Week (also read our rave 9/10 review of the album). Charli’s cover features 100% more Auto-Tune. Watch it below, as well as the “Boys” performance and Charli discussing her use of Auto-Tune.

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.

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.
