Charli XCX announced that she'll be recording a new collaborative album, 'How I'm Feeling Now,' while in self-quarantine


Charli XCX is keeping herself busy this quarantine by recording a whole new album — and she needs your help.

The British pop star announced in a video on Monday that she’ll be releasing the LP, with the working title: How I’m Feeling Now, on May 15th, and that she’ll be making the entire process collaborative with her fans.

“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,” she said. “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.”

She continued, “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.”

So far, Charli has spent quarantine hosting a daily Instagram Live series where she chats with other artists, including Orville Peck and Rina Sawayama. Her last album, Charli, was released in 2019.
