While fans wait for her highly anticipated new album, Charli XCX has just dropped a ten-track mixtape called Number 1 Angel. As Complex is reporting, the U.K. singer announced the release and previewed tracks earlier this week on BBC Radio (as Brits do), and now she has officially dropped Angel via Spotify and other channels. Only in our current world could someone promise a long-gestating album (in Charli’s case, the follow up to 2014’s Sucker), release what is, essentially, a full album, and still have fans clamoring for the official official release. But clamor they do! And still no word on that third studio release, which the artist self-describes as “a party record.” Guess this lil’ ol’ mixtape will have to do for now.
