Charli XCX's 2020 album how i'm feeling now was one of the biggest albums to be made during quarantine, and we're now going to get an insight into the experience.
She's just announced that she's finished the documentary, Alone Together, which covers the course of making the album, and it's been directed by Bradley Bell and Pablo Jones-Soler. The documentary is set to air on March 18th as part of SXSW Online 2021.
The documentary will headline SXSW Online 2021. It's set to run from March 16-20, with a line-up of 75 feature films, as well as shorts, episodics and special events.
Charli has previously spoken about the documentary, saying that she wanted to capture the experience of making an album in such unique circumstances. “It felt only natural to document myself making this album. I don’t think I’ve ever made music in such a unique situation: being so logistically far apart from my collaborators, but going through exactly the same thing, writing songs about my relationship with my boyfriend sitting in the next room, and being so connected to my fans in such an intense and creative way, it felt quite overwhelming and heartwarming all at the same time. So I wanted to film it all."
Posting on Instagram about the documentary, Charli says, "The documentary tells the story of not only the 5 week process surrounding the making of my album, how i’m feeling now, but also all the emotions that creating, connecting and living in a quarantine and in basically a new world evokes for people across the globe.
"Thank you to the angels who are featured in this documentary and also to directors @bradleyandpablo, u now know me inside out. Thanks to @emmieshouse @kvrowley @sampringle and of course, scene-stealer @huckkwong. Thank you to iconic Ross Levine, not sure what ur insta handle is, and also to all the editors and others who helped us with this feat."
She's not sure when there will be a global release date, saying, " Not sure when this is coming out but enjoy it when it does," but for now, you can visit the SXSW website to find out more.
