Charli XCX has reassured fans that her new album is on its way “soon”.
The singer-songwriter also said that the currently untitled album, her follow-up to last year’s ‘Sucker’, is “the most pop thing I’ve done”.
“I’m going to be putting a record out soon and it’s going to be the most pop thing I’ve done,” she told the Evening Standard. “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.”
Earlier this year, Charli XCX released the four-track EP ‘Vroom Vroom’, which featured production from PC Music associate Sophie. She told NME in February that alongside producer BloodPop (Grimes, Justin Bieber) and Norwegian duo Stargate (Rihanna, Coldplay), Sophie has also handled some of the production on her new album.
Meanwhile, in her capacity as a songwriter, Charli XCX has submitted tracks for the forthcoming album from pop legends Blondie.
In April, she helped Cartoon Network launch the return of beloved cartoon The Powerpuff Girls, saying at the time: “The Powerpuff Girls are 100% the strongest and coolest kind of role models to have around. The show flips gender stereotypes on its head and is accessible and fun for kids but also for people my age.”
“I see myself in the characters for sure!” she added. “As all girls should. Strong, fierce, sassy and cute are all the best ways to be, and we all have that deep down inside us even if we don’t quite realise it yet.”
