Fresh off the Summer of “Fancy” and her follow-up, the Fault in Our Stars–boosted hit “Boom Clap,” Charli XCX will release her second album, Sucker, this October. The first single is called “Break the Rules,” and it’s a little Lorde (“I don’t  wanna go to school / I just wanna break the rules”) and a little Blur “Song 2.” Will the video have goth cheerleaders? Probably.
