Charli XCX has announced that she’s releasing her third How I’m Feeling Now track “I Finally Understand” tomorrow (7 May).
How I’m Feeling Now is Charli XCX’s forthcoming album that she’s created from scratch during lockdown. She’s been collaborating with PC Music’s A. G. Cook, 100 gecs’ Dylan Brady, Danny L Harle, and more, and has been sharing the entire process – from demos, lyric ideas, screenshots of messages, artwork options, zoom conferences – with fans.
So far, Charli XCX has released two tracks from the LP – “Forever” and “Claws” – and on Saturday (1 May), she uploaded four artwork picture options.

Yesterday (5 May), she posted her artwork choice, and revealed the three artists that will create alternative covers for the single, and also unveiled the title of her next track, which is “I Finally Understand”.
Speaking to BBC last month, Charli XCX said of her forthcoming album, “I wanted to do the album in an intense period of time, because I thought it would be more fun for people watching, and also because there’s more likely to be some kind of screw-up or error in a short amount of time, which is probably more interesting.”
“I Finally Understand” arrives tomorrow (7 May). Charli XCX’s How I’m Feeling Now album will be released 15 May.
