Charli XCX announces a series of special How I’m Feeling Now live shows

The pop star will perform the quarantine album IRL in London, LA, and New York

Earlier this week, Charli XCX hinted that XCX5 could mark a departure from her characteristic hyperpop sound, saying that she’s “just very into making ultimate pop music” right now, and that the “whole album is very contrasting from how i’m feeling now”.

That doesn’t mean that the quarantine album’s era is quite over yet though. Earlier today (August 10), the singer announced a series of new live performances to showcase how i’m feeling now.

Beginning on September 27 at the Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles, the three “special shows” will also see the pop star perform at Le Poisson Rouge in New York (on October 1), and London’s Lafayette (October 24). 

“Let battle commence,” Charli captions the announcement. “Be ready.”

Last week (August 2), Charli XCX also teased her first new music since how i’m feeling now. Titled “Good Ones”, the upcoming single is set to arrive on September 2 (we should “get ready to surrender”, apparently). New music has also been teased via the singer’s TikTok.

In a new podcast, meanwhile, Charli XCX is setting out to curate the “ultimate life playlist”. Best Song Ever will feature appearances from Addison Rae, Barbie Ferreira, Ziwe, Mark Ronson, Caroline Polachek, and more. Christine and the Queens recently joined Charli in the first episode, breaking down the best songs to fall in love to.

Tickets for Charli XCX’s how i’m feeling now are set to go on sale tomorrow at 10am, local time. See the full details in her announcement below.
