Charli XCX is putting out a documentary about the recording process for her latest LP, how i’m feeling now.
The film is called 6ft Apart and it was directed by Bradley&Pablo who have worked on music videos for Rosalia, Harry Styles and Frank Ocean. The film was shot at the same time as Charli worked on the record, between 6 April and 14 May 2020.
Speaking to Variety about the project, 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???”
A release date for 6ft Apart has not yet been confirmed. Revisit our 2019 documentary on Charli in the player above.
