Charli XCX releases new single “Good Ones” (listen) + electrifying music video

Charli XCX has released her first proper single of 2021, “Good Ones,” which finds Charli delivering airy hooks over a bouncy synth line that sounds more than a little like the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams.”

Listen and watch the “Good Ones” video

Charli says:

Today, I, the inimitable Charli XCX, am releasing a brand new single ‘Good Ones’, accompanied by a twisted, dramatic and quite frankly electrifying music video.

The first single of my new chapter embraces all that my life has to offer in today’s world – fame, glamour, inner demons and global hits. ‘Good Ones’ was produced by Oscar Holter of Max Martin’s Wolf Cousins entity, and laments my inability to keep hold of healthy relationships, instead being endlessly drawn back to the dysfunctional and toxic.

Filmed in Mexico and co-directed by my new favorite director: Hannah Lux Davis, the ‘Good Ones’ video sees me dramatically mourning the untimely loss of my partner as I battle with the realisation that once again I’ve abandoned the goodness in my life, in favour of the sinister, with a visual aesthetic that marks a new era of me: Charli XCX.

Charli also has upcoming shows, including NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge on October 1, and she’ll appear on the Lady Gaga Chromatica remix album that comes out this Friday .

Charli XCX – Good Ones

[Official Video]

Good Ones Charli xcx Lyrics

I wish you gave me a reason

That you were better at leavin’

That you got your kicks from seein’ me low

I always let the good ones go

Don’t want the kisses, unless they’re bitter

I’m hooked on touches that leave me weaker

I swear that I love nothin’ more than broke

I always let the good ones go

And baby, you couldn’t have loved me any better

But doin’ this is all that I’ve known ever

I want the bad ones, ’cause they’re all I know

I always let the good ones go

I always let the good ones go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

I let the good ones go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

I let the good ones

Let you down easy, I’m tryin’

‘Cause you’re everything I’ve spent my whole life fightin’

So when I walk away, it’s not your fault

I always let the good ones go

And baby, you couldn’t have loved me any better

But doin’ this is all that I’ve known ever

I want the bad ones ’cause they’re all I know

I always let the good ones go

I always let the good ones go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Oh, oh)

I let the good ones go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Yeah, yeah)

I let the good ones go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

(And baby you couldn’t have loved me any better, better, better)

I let the good oness go-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

(But doin’ this is all that I’ve known ever, ever, ever)

I let the good ones go

Charli XCX Lets Another Good One Go, Drops ‘Good Ones’

“I always let the good ones go,” Charli XCX sings in the hook of her new single, “Good Ones.” Sure, she’s probably talking about love, but she could be talking about music, given the wealth of bangers she has let go into the world in recent years. That trend continues today, with the pop musician’s much-teased new song: an immediately hooky hit of synthesized thrills. “Good Ones” also comes with a video directed by Hannah Lux Davis, finding Charli serving looks at a funeral, as only she could. In a statement, Charli called “Good Ones” the beginning of a “new chapter” that “embraces all that my life has to offer in today’s world — fame, glamour, inner demons and global hits.” The song comes after her 2020 album how i’m feeling now, made at the beginning of Charli’s pandemic quarantine.

Charli XCX is back with big “Sweet Dreams” energy and even bigger hair. Charli’s been teasing her new single “Good Ones” for weeks now, and today it’s finally here in all its blocky-synth glory.

At just over two minutes, the song is short and sweet, merging those ’80s new wave and synthpop touchstones with more of a Y2K-era pop sensibility. “I let the good ones go,” Charli breathily laments.

Lately Charli has been posting various funeral-themed images on her Instagram, including one that seems to tease a new album for release all the way in March 2022. Her most recent full-length was last year’s quarantine album How I’m Feeling Now. Although billed as an official LP, the feel of that one was more in keeping with her great 2017 mixtapes Number 1 Angel and Pop 2. Then again, it’s not like 2019’s Charli deviated significantly from those projects’ futuristic pop sound. “Good Ones,” however, feels more in line with Charli’s more mainstream-leaning material. Is she aiming for chart success again?
