Charli XCX has just released "London Queen" via YouTube, the third single from her upcoming album, Sucker. Listen and check out the lyrics above.
The song is electronic pop-punk, with a seriously amped up feel. Built around a tight drum beat, there are '80s synth sounds and handclaps mixed in with overdriven bass and lots of subtle production touches. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 22-year-old said the track is like "future Ramones" and offered praise for the producer, Justin Raisen:
I think Justin Raisen is one of the most amazing producers around right now, and he's going to blow the fuck up in the next couple of years... That's something that I would never usually do, take a song that's basically almost been written for me, but it was a song that Justin made, and I was like, fuck, this song is so good and it feels like it's about me.
