It is executive produced by A.G. Cook, previous Charli collaborator and head of the experimental pop label PC Music, while the list of producers also includes more mainstream names such as Lotus IV and Oscar Holter, promising a mix of sounds. “This album is my most personal, which is why I decided to call it by my name,” Charli wrote on Instagram. “I’ve put as many of my emotions, my thoughts, my feelings and my experiences with relationships into these 15 songs and I am so proud of them.”

Prior to the release of the album, a 12-episode podcast series titled ‘It’s a Pixies Podcast’ and hosted by journalist Tony Fletcher, known for his biographies of Keith Moon and REM, detailed the recording of each song on Beneath the Eyrie. Produced by Tom Dalgety, it is the band’s second album with this particular line-up, which includes Black Francis (vocals, guitars), Joey Santiago (guitars), David Lovering (drums), and Paz Lenchantin (bass).

According to a press statement, the album, which was recorded in solitude at her home in North Carolina, describes “an internal awakening of feminine energy, a connection to the maternal spirit of the Earth, and a defiant stance against the destructive and controlling forces of a greedy and hostile patriarchy.”

Featuring the single ‘Jesus Forgive Me, I Am a Thot’, the record was announced in a trailer featuring cameos from James Blake, Jeff Tweedy, Flume, Channel Tres, DJ Dahi, Kenny Beats, Injury Reserve, who briefly described their strong impressions to the album after having listened to it. “I wouldn’t listen to it outside of this room,” Flume remarks, while Kenny Beats adds, “It’s not even really music.”

Specific but never esoteric. And graphic but never offensive. Miami Memory is the story of a couple balancing sex with contemporary family values…. It’s my gift to my girlfriend, a symbol to hoist on the totem of love.”

Other albums out today: Belle and Sebastian, Days of the Bagnold Summer; Emeli Sandé, Real Life; KoRn, The Nothing; Metronomy, Metronomy Forever; The Lumineers, III.
