Not only is Charli XCX releasing her new ‘Vroom Vroom EP’ this Friday 26, but she has also started her own record label Vroom Vroom Recordings. Charli has toured the globe over the past couple of years to mark the release of her second studio album SUCKER which has over 850,000 album sales to date. She recently co-wrote Selina Gomez’s number one hit “Same Old Love,” she’s received Sesac ‘Songwriter of the Year’ in 2013 and Billboard’s ‘Hitmaker of the Year’ in 2014. Charli worked with electronic/synth-pop producer SOPHIE on her new EP. Charli’s “Vroom Vroom” track, which was released towards the end of 2015, showcased her expertise for producing music and was recorded in Stockholm last year. Following this exciting news, Charli has been confirmed to host her own Beats 1 radio show starting on February 26 at 8 p.m. UK time. Her EP track “Trophy” will also receive its first play with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 tonight, alongside an on-air interview.
I’ve worked with SOPHIE on the new EP and what we create together speaks for itself. Sometimes we get aggressive, sometimes we get beautiful; he pushes me and I push him. I’m making beautiful party songs right now and this is just the start. The album goes to other places and I can’t wait for people to hear it. I feel the most creative I have in a long time and I couldn’t be more excited for the next chapter.”
