The London artist is set to release her new album ‘Charli’ in September, which will be her first studio LP since 2014’s ‘Sucker’ and the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Pop 2’ mixtape.
After giving ‘Gone’ its live debut at Primavera back in May, Charli has now released her new single and its dramatic accompanying video. The clip features both Charli and Christine giving a passionate performance of the track as rain falls and they dance on top of a white vintage car.
The stage set-up later bursts into flames and sparks fly as the drama reaches a crescendo – you can watch the full video for ‘Gone’ below.
Addressing her fans on Twitter this evening (July 17), Charli said that the new song is about “feeling shy and anxious and unstable, and trying to break out and free yourself of those feelings”.
