Popsugar interviews Charli XCX about album Sucker and its unusual sound.
For me, I never want to do the same thing twice with anything that I do, particularly with my music. So after my first record, True Romance, came out, I wanted to challenge myself and my audience and push it in a different direction. As a live performer, it’s always been kind of more rock and roll, so I wanted to do something that would complement that it all just kind of made sense for me to go that way. I was in Sweden making songs with some of my best friends, and that was what was coming out. I always like to record quickly, and that kind of music really suits powering through it and just making as many songs as possible. So it was cool. That’s kind of how it ended up there.
