Charli XCX Is Releasing a Documentary About the Making of Her Quarantine Album
'6ft Apart' will document the making of her recent record 'how i'm feeling now'
Published Jul 16, 2020While most of us have been focused on flattening the curve, Charli XCX has been way ahead of it. Specifically, the versatile pop auteur recorded and released an entire album during quarantine, and how i'm feeling now was soon heralded as one of the best albums of 2020 so far. Now, she's going to share the process of making it with a new documentary.
According to Variety, Charli is set to release a film called 6ft Apart that will showcase the making of the album, which was announced on April 6 and released on May 15.
"It felt only natural to document myself making this album," Charli said. "I don't think I've ever made music in such a unique situation: being so logistically far apart from my collaborators, but going through exactly the same thing, writing songs about my relationship with my boyfriend sitting in the next room, and being so connected to my fans in such an intense and creative way, it felt quite overwhelming and heartwarming all at the same time. So I wanted to film it all.
"Why not add to the pressure of making an extremely personal album within a five-week timeline by putting a load of cameras in my face and zooming in on my personality and insecurities too??! You know???"
The film was directed by Bradley&Pablo, who have previously shot music videos for the likes of Harry Styles, Lil Nas X and Rosalia. A release date has not yet been revealed.
