Speaking on the new album the "Fancy" singer said that the songs are still a pop record 100 percent, but it's definitely punk inspired. "I've been listening to a lot of Ramones, and Hives. I worked with Rivers [Cuomo] from Weezer,” she says.
Hypable reports that other artists to appear on the soundtrack include Lykke Li, Birdy, and Grouplove, as well as Ed Sheeran. The full soundtrack lineup is expected to be revealed tomorrow, April 12. The film’s twitter account has been releasing teasers to the album leading up to the big reveal, which are happening in conjunction with the MTV Movie Awards tomorrow.
When Fuse caught up with Charli XCX at the SXSX the singer excitedly spoke of her forthing coming album. The "Fancy" singer said that the songs are still a pop record 100 percent, but it's definitely punk inspired. "I've been listening to a lot of Ramones, and Hives. I worked with Rivers [Cuomo] from Weezer,” she says.
Her new album comes just a year after the release of her debut hit album True Romance which was released a year ago. The talented singer was also supposed to release "I Love It" on True Romance, which she ultimately passed on and was released by Icona Pop. Though she insists she doesn’t regret not putting it on her album. "I don't regret giving it away. [Icona Pop are] totally owning it. I sang it with them at South By Southwest, though, and it was this real girl power moment,” she said to NME.
Next up for the young singer is a show date in the U.K. in May, and then she'll be back in the U.S. for Forecastle Festival in Kentucky in July.
