Pop Singer Charli XCX will be releasing a documentary film called 6ft Apart based on the recordings from her quarantine album she released in May, titled How I’m Feeling Now.

The album was the first one made in quarantine by a major artist and it was first announced on April 6, before being released on May 15th.

“It’ll be very DIY—I’ll make it from scratch, very indicative of the times we’re in,” she said during a Zoom session with fans and advance streams were available on the 14th.

“It felt only natural to document myself making this album,” Charli said of the film to Variety. “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.”

“Why not add to the pressure of making an extremely personal album within a five-week timeline by putting a load of cameras in my face and zooming in on my personality and insecurities too??! You know???,” she continued.

The film’s currently in post-production and there’s no release date set yet.
