Charli XCX taps SOPHIE and Hannah Diamond for Vroom Vroom EP, starts new label

Ohhhhhh myyyyyyy GOD. Thousands of angels are dying right now, as Charli XCX has announced not only a new release called Vroom Vroom, but a whole new “experimental pop” label called Vroom Vroom Recordings. The EP boasts four new tracks, all of them produced by SOPHIE. You might’ve already heard the title track when she premiered it last year on Apple Music’s Beats 1 show, and maybe you’ve already heard “Trophy” from SOPHIE’s live set. But have you heard “Paradise,” which features vocals from PC Music’s Hannah Diamond and songwriting help from PC Music’s A. G. Cook? What about “Secret (Shh)”? Why aren’t you answering me!?

The EP is out February 26 on her new label, with her third full-length expected later in the year. In addition to SOPHIE and A. G. Cook, Charli collaborated here with MNDR (Amanda Lucille Warner), Noonie Bao, Jodie Harsh, Martin Stilling, Jesse St. John Geller, Jessica Ashley, and Patrik Berger. Check out the title track below and more from Vroom Vroom Recordings here and here:

Vroom Vroom Recordings is my new, experimental pop label and it will combine my love for bubblegum pop with mystery and darkness. The artists coming up through it will be sharp, potent, deadly, and ultimately, will leave their mark on pop music. RIVRS and CuckooLander are two artists who have so much intelligence, pop sensibility and potential - they know what they want and both have great vision. That inspires me and it’s why I want to work with them. I’ve always been fascinated by shy and introvert people - it’s something that I am mostly not - and I feel both acts are in ways. It captivates me and sucks me in, and I think their music will do the same for others. 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.

UPDATE (2:30 PM): Charli premiered “Trophy” on Beats 1 radio.

UPDATE (2/24): Charli premiered “Paradise” on Annie Mac.

Now, rev the Lamborghini and roll up in your blue bikini. Let’s ride bb. ;)
