Appearing as the in-studio musical guest on Wednesday night, the British pop star delivered her latest track from a makeshift graveyard — it is spooky season, after all. Backed by a two-piece band (that, frankly, looked like zombies without the makeup), Charli XCX opened the performance by crawling out of her own grave. From there, it was as dark and sexy as the song’s official visuals, fitting it right into this “ultra pop star” era of Charli.

The single mark’s Charli XCX’s first new material since last year’s excellent lockdown album How I’m Feeling Now. Where that effort was filled with vulnerable pop tunes fit for the time, Charli promises she’s “unlocked this kind of ultimate top-tier level” of “fame, glamour, inner demons, and global hits” for this new one.
