Charli XCX just announced that she'll be releasing her third studio album Vroom Vroom  this Saturday!!! (Feb. 27th) via her new label of the same name. She also released two new songs "Trophy" and "Vroom Vroom" which you can listen to below as well as announcing her new label Vroom Vroom Recordings in which she introduced us to two new artists she signed - RIVRS and CuckooLander.  

Below is the letter she sent out to the world.  


Hey Angels, 

I'm releasing a brand new EP called VROOM VROOM on Feb 27th on my own brand new record label Vroom Vroom Recordings... and I'm so excited about taking this next step.

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...

You can hear the first track from it, called "Trophy", on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show tonight!!... and starting this Friday 8pm (UK time) I'm hosting my own Beats 1 show every fortnight. I'm going to have amazing guests and music so come tune in.

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.

We're kicking this off live on March 11th and Ace Hotel in Shoreditch with a live performance from RIVRS, I'll be DJing along with Cuckoolander, and there might be some more surprises on the night. Tickets are on sale HERE but it's super intimate, so don't wait too long.

I'll have news on my full new album coming soon, but until then go check out RIVRS and Cuckoolander on Vroom Vroom and stand by for my full VROOM VROOM EP.
