Charli XCX has dropped a new song, “Claws,” the latest release from her forthcoming album how i’m feeling now, due out on May 15th.
The album is being written, recorded and released in quarantine due to the pandemic, featuring fan feedback on every aspect of the record – from videos, to songwriting choices, to single selection, including “Claws.” The song was produced by Dylan Brady of 100 gecs. Charli XCX recruited Paris Hilton to help create the album cover for her isolation album.
“Claws” follows the lead single “Forever,” released earlier this month. The song’s video featured a vast collection of XCX’s personal photos and videos shot during quarantine.
Charli recently held her weekly Zoom conference for 1,000 fans, in which she answered questions about the making of the record’s visuals accompanied by hosts Paris Hilton, Gia Gunn and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Today, the singer will appear at 100 Gecs’ Square Garden, a digital festival inside the game “Minecraft.” The lineup includes pop experimentalists like Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, A.G. Cook and others.
