It looks like we’re not getting that Charli XCX album until 2018 now

But it's because she has so much else she wants to release first, so that's probably okay.
Oh look, it appears that Charli XCX’s new album is delayed.

Our Chaz doesn’t have much luck with her release dates. Last album ‘Sucker’ suffered all kinds of put-backs, eventually resulting in a weird split release with subtly different versions being released in different territories.

Now it’s the follow up that’s shifting about, but it seems to be – in part – her own decision.

“I finished my album in the middle of last year,” she told The Fader, “and I’m probably not even going to release it until next year now, because I want to release a lot of other music before, that isn’t totally linked to the album. For me personally, I don’t think albums are the end goal anymore for musicians. Continuously releasing music really suits the way that I work as a songwriter and as an artist.

“I’m not going to touch the album until two months before it’s going to come out, because if I started working on it again I would probably write another four albums. Maybe more. I just write so much that it becomes confusing. Of course, some of the stuff I write isn’t good — some of it is terrible and will never see the light of day — and some of it is good, you know. I might do another mixtape before the album though.”

Charli. Doing your homework last minute isn’t cool.

OK, it’s a bit cool. We just want that record now.
