Charli XCX pushes release date for new album ‘Sucker’ back to 2015

Success of 'Boom Clap' single behind three-month delay

Charli XCX has delayed the release of her new album ‘Sucker’ until January 2015.

‘Sucker’ was due to be released on October 5 but will now arrive on January 26 next year. Tweeting about the delay, the singer stated that the success of the single ‘Boom Clap’ means that a new date is necessary to “launch the album properly”.

‘Boom Clap’ will appear on ‘Sucker’, as too will new single ‘Break The Rules’. The British singer has worked with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend on the record.

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.”

‘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.
