November 23, 2021

Charli XCX has announced the release of a new documentary entitled "Charli XCX: Alone Together" which chronicles the creation of her album "How I'm Feeling Now" (2020) amid quarantine.

Directed by Bradley & Pablo, known for creating music videos for artists such as Harry Styles and Rosalía.

The documentary is scheduled to premiere in theaters and on-demand platforms on January 28.

"Charli XCX: Alone Together" premiered at SXSW in March 2021.

As mentioned last year, the documentary was co-produced with the album "How I'm Feeling Now" between April 6 and May 14, 2020 and offers a behind-the-scenes look at Charli XCX's creative process in real time.

In the description for "Charli XCX: Alone Together" he mentions that the documentary examines the singer's battle with anxiety, her unfulfilled desires and her long-distance relationship with her partner Huck Kwong.

"With almost a year of editing over 5,000 videos from different cameras and formats condensed into 107 minutes, 'Charli XCX: Alone Together' is a love letter to her fans, who are the co-stars of the film," it said.

"I felt it was natural to record myself during the making of this album," Charli told Variety last year.

"I do not think I have created music again in such a special situation: I was so far away materially from my colleagues, but I was going through exactly the same thing, I was writing songs about my relationship with my boyfriend sitting in the next room and I was so connected to "My fans in such an intense and creative way, that I felt quite shocked and moving at the same time", he explained.

"It simply came to our notice then. "Why not increase the pressure of creating an extremely personal album in five weeks by placing a bunch of cameras on my face and focusing on my personality and insecurities?" He added.

After the documentary "Alone Together", Charli XCX is expected to release on March 18, 2022 her new album entitled "Crash".
