New Album Alert - Charli XCX - True Romance

Charli XCX was on our pop radar last year with her hits You’re The One and You (Ha Ha Ha) due to her unique sound, that reminded us of a little bit Robyn, a little bit Dev but her own Pop/Electronic style. Also we love her more for writing and featured on one of the biggest global breakthrough synth pop hits of the last year for Icona Pop. I Love It, which is still played at the SCP HQ daily. Well, the 20-year old Hertfordshire lass is now ready to release her debut album True Romance next month. Over the past few years...
Charli has released a series of singles and mixtapes, toured the globe supporting the likes of Santigold, Sleigh Bells and Justice and garnered champions from practically every tastemaker blog and magazine on both sides of the Atlantic. Now she is ready to deliver her dark, emotional pop record which she has work with some top producers including Ariel Reichstadt (Usher, Major Lazer, Solange) and Patrik Berger (Lana del Rey, Robyn)

Charli commented, ‘I am so happy to have finished my first album, True Romance. For me, it's a very emotional record. I suppose I kind of grew up through the process of making this album and as I've grown my views on love and life have been constantly changing. Each song is about love in some shape or form, whether that be euphoric love, heartbreak or obsession. Every corner of my own romantic history is explored on this record, so for me it’s very raw, it's very honest and it's very true. I've written a pop record from the heart, and when people hear it I hope they want to dance and cry at the same time. ’

Well we are excited already and think this could be one of our fav pop albums of the year. Let’s hope it doesn’t disappoint.
