Charli XCX has announced the release of her new album 'Sucker'.

She will release her second LP on October 5 through Asylum Records. It will feature her Top 10 single 'Boom Clap' as well as 'Break The Rules', which will come out on the same day as the album. Speaking about the new single, Charli XCX commented: "The song is inspired by a lot of the things I was listening to whilst in Sweden at the end of last year. I spent about a month making a punk record and covering songs by Swedish punk bands like Snuffed By The Yakuza. This song was written when I came out of the other side of that punk phase and translated it into something more pop."

'Sucker' follows 2013's 'True Romance'. To support the release of the album she will play a one-off show at London's Heaven on October 30.

Speaking to NME about the record earlier this year, Charli XCX said she'd be using the LP to establish herself as a solo artist, after becoming famous for duetting with Iggy Azalea and writing for Icona Pop. "I can write a fucking hit song," she said. "And I'm going to write some for me now. I feel like as an artist I've done so many collaborations now that I think I just want to take this record for myself."

Underlining her desire to make something which appeals to the same number of people as 'I Love It' and 'Fancy', she continued: "I'm not making a hipster record that's very cool and sounds like it was made at the beach. It's easy for me to make a record like that. I'm making a record that people might fucking hate but I don't care because I've done it the way I want to do it."

Earlier this year the UK pop star revealed that she worked with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend on the record.
