CHARLI XCX REMEMBERS ‘FEBRUARY 2017’ WITH HELP FROM CLAIRO + YAEJI

Charli XCX teams with phenomenons Clairo and Yaeji to release a new track “February 2017” co-written by all three women with production from A G Cook and French trio Planet 1999. “February 2017” is a melancholic introspection of regret and a plea of reconciliation following a disintegrated romance — off her third studio album “Charli” officially arriving on September 13th via Atlantic Records – LISTEN HERE!

Charli thinks back on the experience: “Collaborating with Yaeji and Clairo was really fun and unique. We are all very different artists but coming together on this song felt so special and right. Clairo and I made a load of songs together in my studio in LA one afternoon at the beginning of the year. None of them were this song but it was so easy to write with her that the second I came up with this idea separately I sent it over to her and she came back with loads of ideas. We sent over this idea to Yaeji too and she did a really beautiful verse. It sounds so intimate. It’s one of the most intimate moments on the album. We shot this artwork in Barcelona. These two women are really kind, talented and brilliant. I enjoy both of their music so much. I’m happy we have this song together.”

The art of collaboration is at the heart of the album, a verified savior of pop, Charli seamlessly binds musical genres from the vast pop spectrum. With Executive Production by Charli XCX and A. G. Cook, collaborators include LizzoChristine and the QueensHaimTroye SivanBrooke CandyCupcakKeBig FreediaSky FerreiraClairo and Yaeji. Charli teamed with AR makeup artist Ines Alpha to design her artworks with a goal of dismantling classic beauty ideals, a pairing which resulted in her striking album cover.
