Check Out an Exclusive Clip From Charli XCX’S Documentary

An exclusive clip of Charli XCX’s lockdown documentary ‘Alone Together’ has been shared ahead of its release. Watch it in its entirety below.

The documentary, which debuted at SXSW in Austin, Texas last year, follows the singer as she works on her fourth studio album, ‘How I’m Feeling Now,’ while under quarantine in 2020.

Charli outlines the project’s pitch to fans through video chat in the clip, including releasing early recordings and opening up about her album-making process.

“For me, my positivity goes hand-in-hand with being creative,” Charli says in the clip. “I really need to be creative to feel happy and to feel comfortable, and to make sure my mental health is staying on track.”

The film marks veteran music video directors Bradley & Pablo’s feature-length directorial debut, produced by Charli with Snoot Entertainment and Dangerous Baby Productions.

A synopsis reads: “With almost a year of editing over 5000 clips from different cameras and formats condensed into 107 minutes, Charli XCX: Alone Together is a love letter to her fans who are the co-stars of the movie.”

In a five-star review, NME wrote: “Alone Together also acts as a post-credit scene for ‘How I’m Feeling Now’. There’s a launch party with Angels connecting via Zoom to enjoy the record together. It’s a world away from the headline shows that opened the documentary but it’s just as euphoric.

“‘All these individual stories add up to one big reminder of music’s healing power’, as Charli explains at the end of the film: ‘We are all, in some way, going through exactly the same thing. In a time where we were forced to be apart, we felt connected in ways we never have before.’ Alone then, but also together.”

Last month, Charli released her fifth studio album, CRASH, which included the singles ‘Good Ones,’ ‘New Shapes,’ ‘Beg For You,’ and ‘Baby.’ On 14th April, Charli XCX: Alone Together will have a special screening in theatres across the country, and it will be available on digital on 18th April.
