The "pretty cool mixtape" Charli XCX imagined on Twitter on Dec. 3 is not merely an idea -- the singer confirmed it is very real, titled Pop 2, and will be released next week. 

In a BBC 1 Radio interview, XCX premiered new track "Out of My Head" featuring Tove Lo and Alma, using it as a segue to announce the new mixtape. "It's the first song from a very real mixtape that myself and A.G. have been working on for the past couple of months," Charli explained. "It's called Pop 2. It's going to drop a week from now but I might release a couple of songs before the full thing. It's coming."

The singer previously tweeted a long list of names in her original teaser, listing Carly Rae Jepsen, CupcakKe, Kim Petras, and many more artists as possibilities for an 'imagined' mixtape. 

Early Thursday (Dec. 7) XCX re-confirmed the lineup on her upcoming mixtape, tweeting a video featuring the names of all the artists that she'd collaborated with on Pop 2

Pop 2 will be XCX's second mixtape this year, following the March release of Number 1 Angel.
