One month after appearing on Brooke Candy’s “XXXTC” record alongside Maliibu Miitch, Charli XCX is redirecting the focus back to the rollout and promotional campaign for her third full-length studio album Charli by serving up the LP’s fifth single. Known as “Warm,” Charli XCX’s latest Charli is a collaboration with Haim and its narrative spotlights a troubled relationship that’s closing in on its collapse.

“It’s a really beautiful song and the idea actually came about because [producer A.G. Cook] sent me this demo of him singing just a melody, no lyrics, but it was so beautiful, and I sat with it for ages and just played it over and over again,” Charli XCX explains via an official statement, sharing the back-story behind “Warm.” “I really like it when A. G. sings, it’s always really inspiring to me so I wrote these lyrics, it’s about unrequited love or more just like when you are in it with someone and they are a player and you aren’t in that zone and you just can’t get on the same page. Danielle, Este and Alana came over to our studio house and they wrote their part, we were in LA when we did that and I’m just very happy we got to collaborate.”

Past singles for Charli XCX’s upcoming Charli project include the Christine and the Queens-assisted “Gone” and her May collaboration with Lizzo, “Blame It On Your Love.”

“All of the collaborators that I work with are opening me up to so many different sounds and styles,” Charli XCX previously told Pitchfork when discussing the studio sessions and creative process that birthed Charli. “A concoction of all that makes a more unique sound.
