Charli XCX to release quarantine documentary

It will follow the making of her lockdown album ‘how i’m feeling now’.

Following the release of her lockdown album ‘how i’m feeling now’ back in May, Charli XCX has announced that she’ll be releasing a new documentary following her journey making the record.

Called ‘6ft Apart’, the doc is directed by Bradley&Pablo and was shot between 6th April and 14th May, with its release date still TBC.

Speaking about the film, she adds, “It felt only natural to document myself making this album. I don’t think I’ve ever made music in such a unique situation: being so logistically far apart from my collaborators, but going through exactly the same thing, writing songs about my relationship with my boyfriend sitting in the next room, and being so connected to my fans in such an intense and creative way, it felt quite overwhelming and heartwarming all at the same time. So I wanted to film it all. Why not add to the pressure of making an extremely personal album within a five-week timeline by putting a load of cameras in my face and zooming in on my personality and insecurities too??! You know???”
