Charli XCX Using Her Spare Time During Quarantine Period To Make A New Album
Charli XCX is utilising her new-found spare time in quarantine to make a new album.
The 27-year-old announced on social media that she is making a new album called How I’m Feeling Now, and she will be making it from scratch.
From artwork to the videos, the Boom Clap singer will be producing the music. She explained, “For me, staying positive goes hand in hand with staying creative, and so that’s why I’ve decided I’m going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch.
The nature of this album is going to be very indicative of the times because I’m only going to be able to use the tools I have at my fingertips to create all music, all artwork, all videos… everything – in that sense, it’ll be very DIY.”
XCX will go as far as “reaching out to people online to collaborate with” and the Boys singer says she is “going to keep the entire process super open so that anybody who wants to watch can.” Charli said, “I’ll be posting demos, I’ll be posting acapellas, I’ll be posting text conversations with my and any collaborators, I’ll be filming myself in the studio, I’ll be doing Zoom conferences to ask fans or anyone watching for opinions or ideas, I’m going to set up an email address so that fans or anyone can send me beats or references… the whole thing in that sense will be extremely collaborative because anybody who wants to be involved can explore their creativity alongside mine.”
We’re very excited about this album!
