CHARLI XCX ANNOUNCES DIY QUARANTINE ALBUM: HOW I’M FEELING NOW
Charli XCX is keeping herself busy this quarantine by recording new music — and she needs your help! Sharing the news to 1000 of her fans live on Zoom earlier today (April 7), the pop star announced that she was “going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch.” Charli will be making the entire process collaborative with her fans and plans to release the LP How I’m Feeling Now on May 15. Watch the full announcement below:
“The nature of this album is gonna be very indicative of the times just because I’m only gonna 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,” she said.
“I’ll also be reaching out to people online to collaborate with. And I’m going to keep the entire process super open so that anybody who wants to watch can. I’ll be posting demos, I’ll be posting Acappella's, text conversations with 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.”
During her period of self-isolation, Charli has been busy delivering a series of special Livestream chats with other artists, including Tove Lo, Christine & The Queens and more. Her last album, Charli, was released in 2019 – don’t miss your chance to be a part of her next release!
