Charli XCX has announced a new documentary about the making of her quarantine album, how i’m feeling now. It’s called 6ft Apart and was directed by Bradley&Pablo, known for directing music videos for Harry Styles, Rosalía, Frank Ocean, and more. No release date has yet been revealed.
“It felt only natural to document myself making this album,” Charli told Variety. “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.
She added: “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???”
The official announcement also describes the documentary as depicting “how this project would become a cathartic lifeline for both Charli and her fans, called the ‘Angels’, and a welcome distraction for the wider music world” as well as “the profound power of music to inspire hope, bringing people together in a time where we are forced to be apart.”
