CRASH (Deluxe) is the deluxe version of Charli XCX’s fifth studio album, which was released one week after the original on March 25, 2022. A. G. Cook, Deaton Chris Anthony, ILYA, Digital Farm Animals, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Oscar Holter are just a few of the collaborators.
Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl, Selfish Girl How Could I Not Know What I Need Right Now, Please Accept My Apologies If I Offended You, and What You Think About Me? How Can I… is a collaboration with George Daniel of The 1975 (who also collaborated on Crash’s title tune), whereas Sorry If I Hurt You was supposed to be the album’s title.
In a video posted to her TikTok account on February 21, 2022, Charli stated that the deluxe edition of CRASH will be released the same week as the album.
The deluxe version of the album includes four bonus songs, including the previously discarded song “Sorry If I Hurt You,” which was supposed to be the title track.
Charli XCX said yesterday (March 23) that fans would be receiving more than “simply remixes,” and she has subsequently unveiled a new website with a vault that enables fans to hear previews of new tracks by entering three-digit number combinations.
The distinct codes for four new tracks have been discovered by a fan account. 357 unlocks a sample of “I Don’t Give A Fuck,” while 232 plays a teaser of “Selfish Girl.” 336 unlocks a preview of “Sorry If I Hurt You,” and 352 unlocks a preview of “How Can I Not Know What I Need Right Now.”
More About Charli XCX:
Charli XCX (Charlotte Emma Aitchison, born 2 August 1992) is an English singer-songwriter who is recognized for her varied approach. She started composing music at the age of fourteen, and her first album, 14 (a limited-edition release from 2008), was suitably named.
Charli signed with Atlantic Records in 2010, and her first song “Stay Away” was released in May 2011. True Romance, her “true” first album, was released in 2013. The album received positive reviews from critics, but it was not a financial success. The release of blockbuster duets like Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” and Icona Pop’s “I Love It” marked Charli’s actual breakthrough.
Charli achieved solo success in April 2014 with her song “Boom Clap,” which was used on the soundtrack of The Fault in Our Stars. In the United States, it has been certified triple platinum, while in her home United Kingdom, it has been certified gold. Sucker, her second album, was a pop-punk attempt that was more successful than her first. On the UK singles chart, “Break The Rules,” “Doing It” (with Rita Ora), and “Famous” all did well.
Charli started working on her third studio album in 2015, collaborating with PC Music artists and affiliates including SOPHIE, Danny L Harle, and A. G. Cook to produce harsher, more electronic music. The Vroom Vroom EP was lauded by critics as a pioneering new kind of pop. Despite this, her record company was unsatisfied with the songs’ performance: “After the Afterparty” and “Boys” both charted in the UK Top 40, but neither had much success internationally.
In 2017, she released two “mixtapes,” Number 1 Angel and Pop 2, defying her label’s commercial expectations with collaborations with M, CupcakKe, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Tove Lo. These films received good reviews from critics, with the last receiving an 84 on Metacritic.
She released a few tracks in 2018, including the previously unreleased fan favorites “Girls Night Out” and “No Angel.” Charli joined pop superstar Taylor Swift on her Stadium Tour from May through August, presenting her to a whole new audience.
She released a 15-song self-titled album the following summer, which included several of her past collaborations. Troye Sivan, Big Freedia, Planet 1999, Christine and the Queens, and Lizzo were among the project’s notable new contributors.
In 2020, she started a new project called how i’m feeling today, which she documented nearly exclusively throughout the first two months of the Covid-19 worldwide epidemic. Cook and Bon Iver’s producer BJ Burton collaborated heavily on the project. Alone Together, a documentary chronicling the project’s recording, aired at SXSW the following spring.
