While we are eagerly awaiting her debut album release, Charli XCX has released a brand new Mixtape to tide us over for a while. Talking about the Mixtape Charli says;
All the songs are about love. Sometimes it's stupid love and sometimes it's heartbreaking love. It's about being confused. In particular, GLOW is a really emotional song for me. I think I had my first proper breakdown when I wrote that song. I cried a lot.
I cried a lot whilst making this mixtape, which is funny because some of the songs seem quite light-hearted and a bit... I dunno... Gangster. To me they're all sad songs in some way though. Some songs were inspired by moments in movies - like DANCE 4 U was inspired by the opening scene of Planet Terror, where Rose McGowan does the pole dance. I think that's a really sad and desperate scene. It makes me cry when I watch it.
I guess that's all just personal shit though. I don't want people to be sad when they listen to SUPER ULTA... I want them to be happy, and I want them to dance. No one dances in this town anymore.
