The 15-track album, produced by the singer along with collaborator AG Cook, will feature guest appearances by Sky Ferreira, Christine and the Queens, Clairo and Big Freedia.

“This album is my most personal, which is why I decided to call it by my name,” XCX wrote on Instagram. “I’ve put as many of my emotions, my thoughts, my feelings and my experiences with relationships into these 15 songs and I am so proud of them. Those of you who have been with me on my journey as an artist, I know you have waited for a new album from me for a long time, and I really hope Charli is all you can imagine and more. I cry when I listen to it – and I also wanna party when I listen to it so I KNOW ITS GOOD.”
