We’re very excited to announce that Charli XCX‘s debut album True Romance will be released on April 16th!  She will also be playing SXSW, Bonnaroo and a US tour with Marina & The Diamonds

Over the past few years, Charli has released a series of singles and mixtapes, toured the globe supporting the likes of Coldplay, Santigold, Sleigh Bells and Justice and garnered champions from practically every tastemaker blog and magazine on both sides of the Atlantic. She’s had 2.5 million views on YouTube, 470k views of new video for ‘You (Ha Ha Ha)’ (in one month) and over 630k total plays on Soundcloud. It’s hard to believe someone so young could achieve so much. Through it all her main focus has always been on making the best possible album she could. This was made possible by working with some fantastic collaborators who helped hone her vision for a dark, emotional pop record including Ariel Reichstadt (Usher, Major Lazer, Solange), Patrik Berger (Lana del Rey, Robyn) as well as hotly tipped blog favourites Blood Diamonds and J£zus Millions.

As well as being an artist in her own right, Charli has written and featured on one of the biggest global breakthrough hits of the last year for Icona Pop. ‘I Love It’ is currently creating an absolute frenzy stateside (featuring on a brand new Dr Pepper ad and also in the hit-TV show Girls) having blown up all over the world; triple Platinum and #3 in Australia, # 1 in New Zealand, #1 in Germany, #4 in Austria, double Platinum and #2 in Sweden and racking up over 10 million YouTube views so far for the official video.
