Fresh off dropping her tearjerker "Cloud Aura" video with Brooke Candy, Charli XCX is back with another new single titled "You (Ha Ha Ha)," which premiered last night on BBC Radio. We're guessing the track is off XCX's in-the-works debut album — she's currently in New York writing with Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt and Clams Casino's Michael Volpe, among others — and it finds one of SPIN's Best New Artists singing simply over Gold Panda's Lucky Shiner closer "You." Though the source material is more than two years old, XCX's new take is no less infectious as it recalls Ellie Goulding's latest "Anything Could Happen." Hear it below.
