The singer is currently on the road with Swift alongside Camila Cabello. During the opening night in Phoenix, the support acts joined the ‘Shake It Off’ star onstage for a performance of the 2014 hit.
Ahead of Swift’s performance, XCX took the opportunity to debut a new track to a packed out stadium.
“This is a brand new song,” she reportedly told the crowd. “I’ve never played it before ever! It’s [called] ‘5 In The Morning’.”
One fan posted a clip of the performance to Twitter, enthusing: “UM HELLO CHARLI XCX PLAYING A NEW SONG FOR THE FIRST TIME AND ITS A BANGER??? WE STAN????”
Meanwhile, it’s been announced that Charli XCX will feature on Rita Ora’s upcoming new single – along with Cardi B and Bebe Rexha. Titled ‘Girls’, the tune is set to drop on Friday (May 11).
