Today I, the iconic global pop star Charli XCX, am announcing CRASH, my highly-anticipated forthcoming album, releasing March 18th 2022. This is the fifth and final album in my record deal…
I have also released ‘New Shapes’ featuring Caroline Polachek and Christine and the Queens, and am announcing my European and North American tour, with tickets available for presale from November 10th. If you don’t stream New Shapes or purchase tickets to the tour you will most definitely burn in hell.
The announcement of CRASH follows my latest single, ‘Good Ones’, a track signaling a new chapter for me in which I embraced all that the life of a pop figurehead has to offer in today’s world – celebrity, obsession and global hits.
I was able to possess and persuade an incredible group of producers and collaborators to contribute to CRASH by using my femme fatale powers and a multitude of dark spells and curses. Some of these include A. G. Cook, George Daniel, Deaton Chris Anthony, Lotus IV, Caroline Polachek, Christine and the Queens, Oscar Holter, Digital Farm Animals, Rina Sawayama, Ian Kirkpatrik, Jason Evigan, Justin Raisen, Ariel Rechtshaid, Ilya, Oneohtrix Point Never, Jon Shave and Mike Wise. They will all remain locked in my basement forever.
In addition, I have also revealed a European and North American tour, with shows in Los Angeles, London, Paris and more. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday November 12th, with ticket presales beginning Wednesday November 10th.

Today, 25-year-old Ethiopian-Canadian singer and songwriter Ruth B. unveils R&B-pop fusion “Die Fast,” the second single from her forthcoming album Moments In Between, out June 11 via Downtown Records. Executive Produced by Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, Solange, Blood Orange, Ellie Goulding) and Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Santigold), “Die Fast” is diaristic pop that rides pizzicato strings and a skeletal beat as Ruth B. unspools a warm vocal that tries unsuccessfully to shed unrequited romantic longing.

Moments In Between
Alongside the new single, Ruth B. is also excited to officially announce her Global Digital Tour in partnership with Moment House. Moment House is the premium digital live platform that connects artists and their core fans for global, elevated ticketed experiences — called Moments. Ruth will be hosting exclusive Moments for several different areas/regions: North & South America, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, and Europe, UK & Africa.
Ruth B announces her new album Moments In Between out June 11 on Downtown Records. The album is the follow up to Safe Haven. Moments In Between was produced by Patrick Wimberly, Justin Raisen and Doug Schaft. These producers have worked with Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Angel Olsen, Maggie Rogers and Ashe.
“‘Situation’ is maybe my favorite song I’ve ever written,” says Ruth, who wrote the track with Ido Zmishlany (Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes). “It sounds so much like me, and where I am now versus a few years ago.”
“Writing songs has always been therapeutic for me,” says Ruth, “and I hope that hearing my songs helps other people in the same way. Whether they’re feeling lonely or heartbroken or happy, I want them to know that someone else understands what they’re going through.”
