How soon is now? Charli XCX’s new album will be out “soon”

Charli XCX’s new album will be out “soon”

We knew it was finished already, but it’s always nice to get an update.

Charli XCX is continuing to vroom vroom up the excitement levels around her new record, telling an Evening Standard reporter at a swanky label party that it’ll be out “soon”.

“I’m just finishing it but I can’t say anything yet. I’ve been in LA chilling and it’s great to be back in London,” she said speaking about the follow-up to ‘Sucker’. Having previously said that this will be a very poppy record (one that “could change the sound of pop music,” to be precise) Charli also added that “it’s going to be the most pop thing I’ve done”. 

Besides, y’know, the small matter of working on her new album, Charli XCX has been busy writing with MØ and Noonie Bao, releasing her Angry Bird soundtrack effort ‘Explode,’ putting out her ‘Vroom Vroom’ EP on her own label, and teaming up with Ed Banger’s Mr Oizo for a ‘Hand in the Fire’. Just a few projects on the go.

We’ve known since February that the album is finished, but it’s always nice to get a little update, isn’t it? Cheers, Chaz.
