Pop Emergency! It sounds like there's a chance of a Charli XCX / The 1975 collab

Dear Reader. It might be a Saturday evening. We may all be digging down the back of the booze cupboard and attempting to work out if we've got enough port for a cheeky v. But - BUT - pop waits for no person, and it's certainly not waiting for two of our absolute mega-faves.

Yep, there's an interstellar 'collab' on the horizon, if we're to take Matty Healy's twitter account as a primary source. Which we should.

Tweeting earlier this evening (10th August), The 1975's frontman revealed that he sent Charli XCX - the ruling queen of awesome pop - a beat at 5 pm yesterday. So much so OMFG. But wait - there is more! "Woke up this morning to a HIT," Matty followed up. "A MONSTER TUNE!!"

"I'm prolific but she's on some shit."

In a reply to one fan, who asked if Matty was going to feature on the track, he answered: "not sure yet but me and [No] Rome and George [Daniel, The 1975's drummer and production mega-wizz] produced".

Yep. It's okay to hyperventilate. We've made some sugary tea. We have paper bags. It'll be okay.

You can check out 'the tweets' below.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
