Charli XCX has a huge capacity to surprise the audience. You never know what we are going to find when listening to a new song or a new album of hers. What is certain is that she always seeks to surprise and attract attention, to be the center of attention.
Since last March 18th, we have with us the new and fifth studio album by Charlotte Emma Aitchison (mostly known as Charli XCX). There were great expectations for her new work, both among her fans and electropop lovers, as the Cambridge-born artist is one of the most important voices in this genre.
The album itself is called Crash and is the follow-up to the acclaimed How I’m Feeling Now from 2020. With this new material, the singer reinvents herself within the pop spectrum now towards both dance and synth textures, in a compilation of songs that is entertaining from start to finish. Charli XCX delivers a material that could be part of conventional pop, but has background, influences and important themes to highlight.
During a video for Spotify, the singer commented that she is very proud of the album’s title track. “I wanted to introduce you to the title track because I think it’s very important to the universe of the album“, Charli XCX said. “It sets the tone and covers quite a few themes that recur throughout the album, including sex, power and self-destruction“, the performer commented.
“I really love this song a lot. I think you can hear Janet Jackson’s kind of influence on this particular song”,she commented
Charli XCX rose to fame in 2008 for collaborating with Icona Pop on the song I love it, a catchy chorus that is still written in everyone’s mind. Since then he continued his artistic career with songs like Fancy or Boom Clap. Very catchy singles that move between pop and danceable electronica.
In addition to this latest album, her documentary Charli XCX Alone Together will be available on Filmin on March 25. In this documentary directed by Bradley Bell and Pablo Jones-Soler we see the artist’s experiences during the pandemic and the process of reflection and creation of the album How I’m Feeling Now in 2020. The musical documentary is starred by Instagram live, video calls and Charli’s desire to be able to enjoy freedom.
