New Release: Charli XCX – ‘True Romance’


UK electro-pop sensation Charli XCX has just released her album, True Romance. Charli says about the project:

I am so happy to have finished my first album, True Romance. For me, it’s a very emotional record. I suppose I kind of grew up through the process of making this album and as I’ve grown my views on love and life have been constantly changing. Each song is about love in some shape or form, whether that be euphoric love, heartbreak or obsession. Every corner of my own romantic history is explored on this record, so for me it’s very raw, it’s very honest and it’s very true. I’ve written a pop record from the heart, and when people hear it I hope they want to dance and cry at the same time.
