Charli XCX delays release of her album Sucker, but announces new single featuring Rita Ora

Charli XCX has pushed back the release date of her new album Sucker. 

The pop singer was due to release the album, which is already out in the US, on January 26th, but has now delayed the release until February 16th. 

The reason for the delay is so XCX's new single 'Doing It', which features singer Rita Ora, can be included on the album. That track is expected to be released online in the coming days. XCX confirmed the news on Twitter yesterday (January 7th), saying:



Sucker features collaborations with Weezer mainman Rivers Cuomo, Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and Haim producer Ariel Rechtshaid and includes the hit singles 'Boom Clap' and 'Break The Rules'. It is the follow-up to XCX's 2013 album True Romance, which you can preview on the right of the page. 

Charli XCX will support the album with a full UK tour in March. 

The tour features eight shows in all, kicking off at Brighton Concorde 2 on March 24th and running until April 2 when the singer plays Birmingham's Institute. 

The trek also features gigs in Glasgow, Sheffield, Oxford, Manchester, Nottingham and XCX's largest show to date at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.
