Charli XCX has a new album coming out soon. The English singer-songwriter announced on social media on Tuesday that she will release her new record, titled How I’m Feeling Now, on May 15th.

Back in late March, Charli XCX hinted that she is using the time in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic to be productive. She first promised several new songs, but now decided to make a full album from scratch.

“I’m going to use this isolation time to make a brand new album from scratch,” she said in a video posted on social media. “I’m only going to be able to use the tools I have at my fingertips to create all music, all artwork, all videos… everything—in that sense, it’ll be very DIY.”

Shortly after making the announcement, the “Break the Rules” singer shared an instrumental version for one of her new songs.

Charli XCX released her most recent studio album Charli back in 2019. The release had 15 songs and featured a number of contributing acts include Troye Sivan, Lizzo, and Haim. It peaked at No.42 on US Billboard, while reaching No.14 on UK Charts. The album was also well received by the critics, who praised the production and songwriting.
