After weeks of teasing, Charli XCX released “New Shapes,” her new song featuring Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek, on Thursday (Nov. 4).

The synth-heavy song sees Charli, Christine and Polachek lamenting their inability to truly let their significant others in, instead pushing them away, rejecting true love and embracing freedom. “New Shapes” marks Charli’s second collaboration with Christine, their first being “Gone” from Charli’s 2019 self-titled album.

Charli took to social media to tell fans that her upcoming album, Crash, will be released March 18 of next year. Ahead of the album announcement, Charli revealed that Rina Sawayama, Oneohtrix Point Never, A. G. Cook, The 1975’s George Daniel and Ariel Rechtshaid, as well as “New Shapes” producers Deaton Chris Anthony and Linus Wiklund, will appear on the album as collaborators.

The 29-year-old will also embark on a multi-date tour in North America and Europe, starting March 26 at the Fox Theatre in Oakland and ending at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival on June 9. Charli revealed that fans can gain early access to tickets when presaving the album on Spotify or preordering the album through her official webstore.
