Charlotte Aitchison, known by her stage name Charli XCX is a UK-based singer-songwriter. Charli XCX released her debut EP "You're the One" on 12 June 2012 in the US, and 30 July 2012 in the UK, featuring bonus tracks.

With an abundance of emotive dark pop songs, and backed by a growing army of top producers and worldwide fans, Charli is not like your run-of-the-mill musician and you can find songs and lyrics from her music in here.

Earlier 2011 summer, Charli released ‘Stay Away’. Co-written and produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Glasser, Diplo), it is as knock-you-to-the-floor as first introductions come. A massive anthem that combines all the majestic bluster of the 80s with distinct post-millennial production, it’s an epic and heart-wrenching addition to pop’s cannon about “unrequited love and being tainted by someone so you can’t be around them any more”.

Guardian Guide made it pick of the week and it made the prestigious Pitchfork Best New Music playlist. Radio 1 support came from Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Rob da Bank, Huw Stephens, Fearne Cotton and Pete Tong.

And this is only the tip of the forthcoming album’s iceberg as Charli is set to unveil another taste of what’s to come with ‘Nuclear Seasons’ set for release at the end of November 2011. She comments, ‘Nuclear seasons is about a sense of decay. Whether it be the decaying of love, the decaying of life or the decaying of a period of time. Its about being lost and frozen and surviving. Its about being on your own and feeling magic alive when you come through the other side.

"You're The One" 2012 single by Charli XCX:

Charli released two free mixtapes onto Soundcloud, containing tracks by her favourite female and male singers, the first entitled "Super Girls, Super Love" and the second entitled "I Like Boys Who Cry". Charli XCX released her debut EP "You're The One" through iAMSOUND Records on June 12, 2012 in the US which will feature the singles "You're the One" and "Nuclear Seasons" plus a remix of each.

"You're the One" debuted on radio on 30 July 2012, featuring extra new tracks. On May 12, 2012, she released her first original mixtape, entitled "Heartbreaks and Earthquakes - The Mixtape" which was a one-track file, which consisted of eight tracks including "How Can I?" from Elfie Hopkins and the OFWGKTA remix of "You're the One". She will then support Santigold and Coldplay on tour throughout Summer. Charli XCX's debut album will be released through iAMSOUND Records, produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, and released in October 2012 (UK) and Spring 2013 (US)

Created over the last year in London, LA and Sweden with a small team of producers (Ariel, Patrik Berger, Jocke Ahlund), Charli XCX’s debut album will be unveiled early next year. If the vast majority of her peers might lack ideas, Miss XCX has more than enough to go round.
