Charli XCX Describes Her “Big Pop Party Album”

Charli XCX plans on putting out a mixtape before her forthcoming LP drops in May.

If you're thirsty for new tunes from the "After the Afterparty" singer, sit tight. The British pop star reveals she'll release a project before her next LP hits later this spring.

In a new Q&A with Rolling Stone, Charli opens up about working with PC Music, the sound of her new tunes and what Britney Spears era is her fav.

On the new album:
"Sophie [a.k.a. Samuel Long] is pretty involved. There are some classic Sophie moments, and we reach the dip-into-the-club-at–4 a.m. kind of zone, but the thing about him is that he's also an incredible pop producer. So there's him doing pop really well on the album. And A.G. Cook is my creative director now. I was just like "Hey, do you want to be my creative director?" He was like 'Yeah, cool.' We talk every day about, like, nail-polish color or whatever like two gal pals. It's pretty great."

Exploring the "club" concept:
"On my previous record, I was really annoyed at the music industry and felt like I had something to prove. After that, I didn't feel I had anything to prove anymore. Also one of my favorite hobbies is partying, and I realized that I never actually made a party album. I never made an album that I would want to hear at a club. It was very indulgent in that sense because I just wanted to make an album that I could get fucked up to. It's the soundtrack to my nights."

Which era of Britney would does she?
The Blackout era.

Other collaborations on the record aside from Lil Yachty:
"There might be a special feature but I can't really talk about who that is. But I'm doing a mixtape also that will come out before then and I've been working with lots of fun people on that."
