Charli XCX collaborates with Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens on new bop ‘New Shapes,’ announces new album ‘Crash’

Charli XCX has shared her highly anticipated collaboration with Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek, “New Shapes.”

The track comes as part of Charli’s announcement of her new album, Crash, out March 18th, 2022. Charli XCX collaborated with some big names on the record, including Rina Sawayama, A. G. Cook, the 1975’s George Daniel, and more. The press release for the new song says that Charli XCX “possessed and persuaded” the stacked guest list. She did this using her “femme fatale powers and a multitude of dark spells and curses. They will all remain locked in my basement forever.”

Today’s collaboration alone is stacked. “New Shapes” is definitely a bop you’ll find yourself revisiting over and over. Packed with synths and sugary instrumentals, this track tackles a more mournful theme. Lyrically, Charli XCX delivers lines like, “All night, all day, we can fall in love in new shapes, new ways/ When the morning comes, I’m sorry I stayed.”

Listen to “New Shapes” below.
