Charli XCX is back and making moves like she’s on a mission. First, she’s planning to drop a new EP on March 25. The project will be called Vroom Vroom, and will serve as the inaugural release of Charli XCX’s own record label Vroom Vroom Recordings. Second, she will be launching a new radio show this Friday on Apple’s Beats 1, entitled The Candy Shop. Lastly, she has a new single out produced by SOPHIE, “Trophy.” The song will be one of four tracks included on her forthcoming Vroom Vroom EP, which also boasts production from Vroom Vroom signees CuckooLander and RIVRS. As Pitchfork notes, Charli will also debut the aforementioned pair’s new songs on her new Beats 1 show this Friday as well. You can stream Charli XCX’s new single “Trophy” and read Charli XCX’s official statement on today’s news below.

Vroom Vroom Recordings is my new, experimental pop label and it will combine my love for bubblegum pop with mystery and darkness. The artists coming up through it will be sharp, potent, deadly, and ultimately, will leave their mark on pop music. RIVRS and CuckooLander are two artists who have so much intelligence, pop sensibility and potential – they know what they want and both have great vision. That inspires me and it’s why I want to work with them. I’ve always been fascinated by shy and introverted people—something that I am mostly not—and I feel both acts are in different ways. It captivates me and sucks me in, and I think their music will do the same for others. I’ve worked with SOPHIE on the new EP and what we create together speaks for itself. Sometimes we get aggressive, sometimes we get beautiful; he pushes me and I push him. I’m making beautiful party songs right now and this is just the start. The album goes to other places and I can’t wait for people to hear it. I feel the most creative I have in a long time and I couldn’t be more excited for the next chapter.
