Charli XCX to create and release new album while in isolation

07 April 2020, 10:02 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Last night (6 April), Charli XCX announced that she's going to create and release a new album titled How I'm Feeling Now while in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans that tuned in to Charli XCX's Zoom conference last night (6 April) witnessed the Charli singer/songwriter announce her new LP How I'm Feeling Now.

In a clip, she discusses the way the album will be created, "For me, staying positive goes hand-in-hand with being creative, and so that’s why I’ve decided that I’m going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch. 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 that I have at my fingertips to create all music, all artwork, all videos, everything. In that sense, it’ll be very DIY."

How I'm Feeling Now will see Charli XCX involve fans by getting opinions on demos and more, "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 a cappellas, 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."

After announcing the album - which will follow on from last year's Charli - the "1999" singer shared some screenshots of messages between her and A. G. Cook, Bj Burton, and Dylan Brady, which reveals the first song she plans to release is called "Forever", and it's due to arrive on Friday (10 April) or Monday (13 April).

Charli XCX's How I'm Feeling Now album will be released 15 May.
