Charli XCX announces self-isolation album 'how i'm feeling now'

Charli XCX has announced that she’s releasing a new album with a working title of ‘how i’m feeling now’.

Sharing the news to 1000 of her fans live on Zoom earlier today, the ‘White Mercedes’ pop star explained that she was “going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch,” which will be released on May 15.

“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.

‘how i’m feeling now’ follows her third studio album, ‘Charli’, which was released in September last year.
