Iconic pop futurist Charli XCX enlists the French pop phenomenon Christine and the Queens to release a perfect pop harmony titled “Gone” today with an electrifying new music video from XCX’s much anticipated forthcoming third studio album “Charli” out on September 13th via Atlantic Records.
“Gone” is a dynamic, pulsating and hard-hitting ode to the complexities of falling prey to others’ opinions. The video features XCX and Chris intensely bound to opposite ends of a car; which sees Chris free the women from their ties, leading the pair to reunite in an explosive and charged performance — following their live reveal at Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona.

Cook, collaborators include Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, Haim, Troye Sivan, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, Big Freedia, Sky Ferreira, Clairo and Yaeji.
