Everyone's favourite pop explosion has released a new track in the wake of delaying her album by a few months.

XCX was vocal about veering towards her punk leanings, even going as far as to cover "Allergic To Love" by Swedish punks Snuffed By The Yakuza.

For her new track, "London Queen", XCX continues that bolshy, bratty guitar noise, using '80s punk rhythms and her unique bubblegum twinge to voice her love for her roots and bafflement at her current living situations.

Speaking about producer Justin Raisen, XCX told Rolling Stone that: "[he] is one of the most amazing producers around right now, and he's going to blow the fuck up in the next couple of years."

Stream the track below. You can also watch our session with her here.

Sucker is out 26 January in the UK/EU on Asylum/Atlantic.
