Kitten have recorded new music with Charli XCX and Justin Raisen.

“Dear, daddy. Please don’t spank me. I’m a good boy @charli_xcx @kittentheband,” Raisen posted to his Instagram account.

The American producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist is known for his credits with Santigold (“Who I Thought You Were”), Kylie Minogue (“If Only”), Sky Ferreira (“You’re Not the One”) and Angel Olsen (“Shut Up Kiss Me”).

Meanwhile, XCX – real name Charlotte Aitchison – previously co-penned songs for MØ (“Drum”), Raye (“I, U, Us”), will.i.am (“Boys and Girls”), Selena Gomez (“Same Old Love”), Icona Pop (“I Love It”) and Neon Jungle (“So Alive”).

Her upcoming promotional single “After the Afterparty” – featuring Lil Yachty – is scheduled to arrive on October 28 via iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and all other digital streaming platforms.

Kitten, on the other hand, are currently working on their forthcoming sophomore studio collection under Warner Music Group / Elektra Records.

The L.A.-based indie rock band’s 2014 self-titled debut album – featuring productions from Chad Anderson and Gavin MacKillop – peaked to number nine on the US Billboard Top Heatseekers Albums Chart.
