Elsewhere at SXSW 2021, Charli XCX will premiere her new documentary Alone Together. The film delves into the making of the pop star’s latest album ‘How I’m Feeling Now’, which was written and recorded in lockdown.

SXSW 2020 was one of the first large events to be shelved due to COVID as the global pandemic began to take hold last March, marking its first cancellation in 34 years.
