Charli XCX stars in French electronic producer/film director Quentin Dupieux’s new song.


Charli XCX is sick of the same old love, so she hopped on something new.

French electronic producer/film director Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr. Oizo) enlisted the help of Charli for a song titled Hand in the Fire off his new EP of the same name (out Friday, Dec. 11).

We’re pleased Charli has landed on a number of feisty pop songs as of late. She cancelled her tour over the summer because she felt restless and uncreative as a songwriter. She said at the time, “As an artist I need to move quickly and write a lot to not feel restless. Sometimes touring really puts me in this isolated world where I feel down and sad but primarily I struggle to multitask and write songs at the same time which is what I need to do to feel OK. I never want to do a show where I just feel like I’m going through the motions. I want to perform and feel alive and like I want to be there and if I force myself to do this, I will not perform a great show for you.”

Sounds like she found what she was looking for, as evident by her Mr. Oizo feature. Listen below:
