Charli XCX

Nouveau-grunge-age popstar Charli XCX has said that her long-long-belated first long-player, ‘True Romance’, will, at long, long last, be released on 15 Apr. We’ve been waiting for this for some time, did I successfully communicate that there?

But still, it’s done, and so this is Charli laying bare the themes and real meaning of the LP: “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”.

Quite apart from all the romance and truth, she’s announced a practical trio of shows, too, the first of which is at London’s Old Blue Last on 17 Apr.
