Charli XCX announces ‘Girl, so confusing’ remix with Lorde

Charli XCX has announced her remix of ‘Girl, so confusing’ with Lorde.

The ‘360’ singer started teasing fans about the collaboration earlier today when she painted over her wall promoting her album art, with the wall now repainted to spell ‘Lorde’.

Charli then took to her private Instagram account @360_brat to share a snippet of the New Zealand singer’s verse on ‘Girl, so confusing’.

She has previously opened up about her relationship with Lorde inspiring the same song,  admitting to being “super jealous” of Lorde’s success when she was younger: “She was into my music. She had big hair; I had big hair. She wore black lipstick; I once wore black lipstick. You create these parallels and think, ‘Well, that could have been me.’ But it couldn’t have because we’re completely different people.”

Charli has clarified the pair remain good friends, with Lorde even praising her recent albumBrat‘ saying: “There is NO ONE like this bitch”.

In the verse, fans can hear Lorde singing: “Well honestly I was speechless / when I woke up to your voice note / You told me how you’ve been feeling / Let’s work it out on the remix”. Take a listen to the snippet down below:

Charli has also opened up about the backstories of some other tracks off ‘Brat’. ‘Talk Talk’, she shared, was inspired by nearly following now-fiancée George Daniel of The 1975 to the bathrooms at the NME Awards. 

“We were not together, but we were definitely very into each other,” she explained. “We were at the NME Awards, we were both sat on different tables, and we were like texting each other, but we weren’t hanging out. But we were both looking over at each other – it was very like, one of us would look and the other one would look away, and then just vice versa.

“You know when you just feel like someone is watching you, you can feel a hole burning in the back of your head or something like that,” she continued. “It was very much that moment.”

In a four-star review of ‘Brat’NME wrote: “On the self-described “club record”, XCX offers pure party girl hedonism. Percolating beats, brash synths, left-field production and vocal lines that flit between bratty quips or honest one-liners.”

“With ‘Brat’, XCX demonstrates that going her own way will always sound pretty good,” it added.

Meanwhile, Lorde is teasing her fourth album. In an update on her Instagram, she wrote: “If the tools do not exist you are spiritually obliged to create them”, along with variations on the word ‘L4’.

The last album she released was 2021’s ‘Solar Power’, with NME hailing it worthy of five stars: “‘Solar Power’, though, doesn’t feel like a record that will suffer that same fate – this is an album that grows in quiet stature with every listen, new nuggets of wisdom making their way to the surface, peeking through its beautiful instrumentation that weaves a stunning, leafy tapestry.

“Few artists strike gold on every record they create but, for the third time in a row, Lorde has done it again, crafting yet another world-beater.”
