Charli XCX will be performing tracks from her recently Mercury-nominated, lockdown album ‘how i’m feeling now’ during a one-off live streamed gig on August 13th.
Boiler Room is to host the event a week today, from 11pm UK time when there’ll also be a DJ set and a conversation with Charli. “Hi guys, it’s Charli here,” she said when announcing the album back in April.
“I hope you’re doing whatever it is you need to do to stay positive during this time of completely unknown, unchartered territory. For me, staying positive goes hand in hand with staying creative, and so that’s why I’ve decided I’m going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch.”
“The nature of this album is going to be very indicative of the times because I’m only going to be able to use the tools I have at my fingertips to create all music, all artwork, all videos… everything – in that sense, it’ll be very DIY.”
