Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens perform a set in TV Heaven in their “New Shapes” video. The song will appear on Charli XCX’s upcoming album Crash. “The fifth and final album in my record deal…” the singer noted — arrives Mar. 18, 2022.
In the visual, the trio appear as the musical guests on the singer’s “new talk show” dubbed TV Heaven, “which will only be available to stream in full once you cross over to the afterlife,” Charli XCX said in a statement.
In a release penned by Charli XCX, she wrote of her new LP, “I was able to possess and persuade an incredible group of producers and collaborators to contribute to Crash by using my femme fatale powers and a multitude of dark spells and curses. Some of these include A. G. Cook, George Daniel, Deaton Chris Anthony, Lotus IV, Caroline Polachek, Christine and the Queens, Oscar Holter, Digital Farm Animals, Rina Sawayama, Ian Kirkpatrick, Jason Evigan, Justin Raisen, Ariel Rechtshaid, Ilya, Oneohtrix Point Never, Jon Shave, and Mike Wise. They will all remain locked in my basement forever.”
The “exquisite” “New Shapes” — produced by Deaton Chris Anthony and Linus Wiklund — follows Charli XCX’s previous single “Good Ones,” “a track signaling a new chapter for me in which I embraced all that the life of a pop figurehead has to offer in today’s world — celebrity, obsession, and global hits,” she wrote.
Additionally, Charli XCX announced a North American tour that kicks off Mar. 26 in Oakland, California. “If you don’t stream ‘New Shapes’ or purchase tickets to the tour you will most definitely burn in hell,” she warned.
