Charli XCX has shared the file for her music video for her new single ‘Claws’ for fans to download and play around with. Released last week, the video is directed by Charli XCX and Charlotte Rutherford and features the pop star performing in front of a green screen as a series of images appear behind her. Now, fans can access the unedited version of the video file via a WeTransfer link.
“claws green screen edit available now for u to download and play with,” she tweeted. “can’t wait to see me dancing in front of a load of rush bottles. go crazy angels.”

Following the track’s release, Charli XCX had also shared the stems of the song and put out a call for fans to remix it.
‘claws’ is taken from Charli XCX’s upcoming quarantine album, how I’m feeling, set to drop on May 15th. It is the second video the artist has released during self-isolation, following lead single ‘forever’, for which she also ran a similar experiment. According to a press release, ‘claws’ is about “the feeling of being close to the one you love every day [and] captures the manic jubilation of love in lockdown in a refreshing way.”
On top of writing and recording her follow-up to 2019’s ambitious Charli, Charli XCX has also been particularly active on social media, hosting frequent Instagram livestream events with guest appearances from the likes of Clairo, Christine and the Queens and Zara Larsson.
