Charlie XCX Teases New Dance LP

Taking to social media, Charli XCX hinted that her forthcoming full length will be a dance record.

By way of her Twitter/X account, the now 31-year-old singer/songwriter previewed her new song ‘Von Dutch’ with a 20-second snippet confirming that her upcoming sixth LP will revisit her dance music roots, writing “i was born to make dance music…i came from the clubs..xcx6 is the album i’ve always wanted to make.”

Born Charlotte Emma Aitchison, the musician recently performed at Boiler Room, where she previewed several new songs along with the full version of ‘Von Dutch.’

One of the Charli’s LP cuts will include a tribute to DJ and producer SOPHIE, who passed away in 2021 at the age of 34 due to a tragic accident in Athens. During an interview with The Face in England about the song, the singer said:

“There was a lot of distance between us because I was in awe of her and wanted to impress her.” “She believed in me in ways that I didn’t believe [in] myself. But I felt like I would never be interesting enough to operate in her world outside of the studio, which was the safe space where we could connect and bond over music.” “I didn’t feel like I was magical enough for this unbelievably magic person. And that makes me ashamed now I don’t have the opportunity to experience that anymore, because she’s gone. I feel ashamed for being a coward. It’s hard to write about. I’m sad for myself that I didn’t experience all this person had to offer.”

Charli XCX’s last LP was ‘Crash’ (2022.)
