Charli XCX reveals ‘quite different’ approach to new album Brat

Charli XCX’s upcoming album, ‘Brat’, is “quite different” for her.

The ‘Hot In It’ singer has revealed she approached the lyrics on her follow-up to 2022’s ‘Crash – which is for all the ravers – as if she was texting her mates to have a gossip.

She told Vogue Singapore in a cover interview for the Pop issue: “Lyrically, this is quite a different record for me. I’ve written the songs almost in the way I would write texts to my friends or based on things I would say to them on FaceTime. We talk a lot about pop culture and music, and it’s been really fun to gossip about the songs we go. They’ll ask ‘Oh, who is this one about? Is this about a friend? Is it about an ex?’ It has fuelled this fun, gossipy narrative which permeates the album.”

The ‘Out Out’ singer already described the LP as “gossipy and hardcore”.

She told NME: “It’s kind of bitchy and gossipy and hardcore and very club feeling.

“It’s definitely one for the girls who like to party and sweat and rave.”

She continued: “I feel good about the music. Every artist says this about their new record, but I really do feel like this is my best music [yet]. I’m super excited.”

It also features a song about dealing with grief following the passing of her fellow pop pioneer and collaborator, SOPHIE, in 2021.

Charli told the outlet in a previous interview about the track ‘So I’: “It’s probably not as simply put as [a tribute] but there is a song on the record which talks about my relationship with SOPHIE. Essentially, dealing with grief is what the song is about. It’s very real. All the lyrics are things that I would text my friends – the kind of dialogue and the voice of this record is very conversational and very diar-etic for sure.”

‘Brat’ is due for release sometime this summer.
