It appears Charli XCX may have teased the guests who’ll feature on her upcoming fifth studio album.
The singer took to social media yesterday (November 1), first saying she’d “be revealing a lot of secrets this week” before tweeting a long list of artists.
Those mentioned include frequent collaborators A.G. Cook, Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek, along with Rina Sawayama, Oneohtrix Point Never and many more. Take a look at the full list below:

Fans began to speculate a collaboration with both Christine and the Queens and Polachek could be on the way back in September, after Charli posted a photo of the three artists together. Christine and the Queens featured on ‘Gone’ from Charli’s self-titled 2019 album, while Polachek appeared on two tracks from Charli’s ‘Pop 2’ mixtape in 2017.
Last month, Charli indicated what fans could expect from the album, telling InStyle the record is “kind of all about sex and sexuality” and “can make people dance and cry at the same time”. A week later, the singer elaborated on those comments, telling fans they can expect “an overload of sexiness” during a recent appearance on The Chart Show on Apple Music 1.
“I want it to all feel sexy. Like the music, the sounds, the tour, the videos, the clothes, the way they feel,” the singer explained. “So that’s kind of my hope really that everyone just discovers they’re in a sexy demon and it all comes out.”
