Charli XCX told Clara Amfo about the song, “Just collaboration, I think was a long time coming for us. We'd been speaking on and off for quite a few years about the idea of doing something together. And we did actually try like a demo like a few years ago now. And I mean, this song basically came about that I got sent like a rough sketch of this chorus. I remember I was driving in the car listening to it when I was in LA, and I was just it was making me feel extremely nostalgic. And of course, as you said, the sample which I mean I love September. I love the original, and I feel like it's something that my fans really connected with as well that kind of like Euro dance-pop thing. And then I just kind of had a brain wave. It's like, okay, I have to send this to Rina because I feel like this could be the one, and it was because seriously, Rina, when you sent me back your vocals, I was like, oh my god, we've done it. They're going to it's going to be so good.” The new album “Crash” is set to be released on March 18, 2022.
