Charli XCX's Album 'Crash' Is "Extremely Pop" but Also "Dark in Many Ways"

Revealing it deals with her inner demons, her femme fatale and her sex.

Charli XCX typically never follows the rules, especially when it comes to her music. However, for her album, Crash, she purposely stuck to the stereotypes.

“I wanted to lean in as much as possible to the nature of a stereotypical major label recording artist,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I wanted to work with multiple collaborators across all the songs. I wanted to write in L.A. I wanted to feel that full pop-writing camp kind of feeling of creating a record.”

In order for her to do “a couple of songs in a very classically stereotypical major label artist type of way,” the British musician worked closely with Atlantic Records. “I A&Red all of my own records and don’t really collaborate with people from the record label like that. But with this album, I did,” she explained.

Charli also touched on what the LP covers. “This is my final album on my five album record deal,” she added. “In many ways, although I’m talking a lot about my inner demons within my relationships and my personal life, I think you can also apply some of the same things to my relationship with my record label and my journey through music. And I wanted to explore that in a multitude of different ways outside of just lyric content. I wanted to explore that through the way I created this record as well.”

She continued, “Even though this album is extremely pop, it’s extremely dark in many ways as well. It’s me talking about a lot of my inner demons within relationships and the way that I behave within relationships. It’s also me embracing my sort of femme fatale and my sex, I suppose. And I think that felt like a really personal journey.”

Crash drops on March 18.
