The Cambridge-born artist first shed light on the new project during last month’s VO5 NME Awards, telling NME that the ten-song mixtape comprises of tracks that she made in collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook during “two weeks in LA when I was feeling really depressed.” Watch the full interview here.
Charli XCX has now shared details about the new release, revealing that ‘Number 1 Angel’ will be available to download on Friday (February 10). The artwork for the mixtape has also been disclosed, featuring the 24-year-old holding a white rose.

Three new tracks from ‘Number 1 Angel’ were debuted on Tuesday evening (March 7) on BBC Radio 1 – listen here (tracks begin at 3:50, 9:19, and 16:22).
The new mixtape is expected to precede the release of her long-awaited third studio album, which, when released, will be her first album since 2014’s ‘Sucker’. She told Rolling Stone back in January that the new record will be a “big pop party album to get fucked up to.”
As well as releasing a song with Atlanta trap artist Lil’ Yachty (‘After the Afterparty’) last year, Charli XCX has also appeared on record recently on the Yasutaka Nakata single ‘Crazy Crazy’ – watch the artist make a cameo in its accompanying video here.
