Both are longtime collaborators, with the PC Music founnder having executive produced the past four Charli XCX records, but "Xcxoplex" is the first song that features both artists.
As the title suggests, Apple vs 7G will feature remixes from both of Cook's 2020 albums Apple and 7G, and will feature his recent "Oh Yeah" remix by Caroline Polachek, umru's remix of "2021", and the EASYFUN remix of "Beautiful Superstar".
He says of the remix album, "When I was working on both Apple and 7G, I really wanted to capture the fun, limitless potential of music - a sense that anything could happen at any time. After so many directions, it felt logical to tie up both campaigns by pitting the two albums against each other. The remixers range from frequent collaborators to longtime influences, and the tracklist includes edits and covers that happened naturally over the last few months, either as part of other people's mixes or virtual live sets. There's really no organising principle other than the feeling that everything is a remix."
