(She’s not) Hanging Around: Charli XCX has nearly finished her new album

Charli XCX has nearly finished her new album

She’s previously cited PC Music and Paris Hilton’s underrated banger ‘Stars Are Blind’ as big influences.

Rejoice, Charli XCX fans! The follow-up to ‘Sucker’ is nearly finished, according to a celebratory Sunday selfie. The caption reads “I’m going to finish recording my new album next week.” So there you have it.

Speaking about her new material’s direction last year, Charli cited Paris Hilton’s underrated pop banger ‘Stars are Blind’ as an influence, and Paris later expressed interest in starring in the new video for Chazzer’s SOPHIE collab ‘Vroom Vroom’. As it happens, Charli has been knocking around the studio a fair bit with the PC Music lot in general, and she previously said that they are another big influence for this new record.

On top of working on her new album, Charli XCX recently collaborated with Ed Banger staple Mr Oizo, andreleased her ‘The F Word and Me’ documentary; about feminism and women in the music industry. Someone’s been busy.

I'm going to finish recording my new album next week...
