The album, home to new single 'After The Afterparty', is due out in May.

Charli XCX has hinted she might leak her new album before its official release date.

According to Zane Lowe, who has just interviewed the singer for Beats 1, Charli said the album is now due in May. However, Lowe also quotes her as saying: “I’m sure I’ll just get bored and leak the whole thing before then anyway.”

Today (October 31) Charli XCX dropped the video for her new single ‘After The Afterparty’, which features Lil Yachty. ‘After The Afterparty’ is the first track she has shared from her new album, whose title has yet to be announced.

Earlier this year, she described the album as “the most pop thing I’ve done”.

“I’m going to be putting a record out soon and it’s going to be the most pop thing I’ve done,” she teased. “I’m just finishing it but I can’t say anything yet. I’ve been in LA chilling and it’s great to be back in London.”

Meanwhile, Charli recently revealed the advice she received from Robyn on how best to succeed in life and music.

“Robyn once told me to always be ME, not worry about what other people think, and fuck everyone if they don’t like it,” she told NME. “To hear that from someone who I admired was so cool and comforting. Just do what makes you feel good and hang out with people you love and feel happy with.”

She added: “I feel that equals good life vibes.”
