When the world is thrust into lockdown in early 2020, Charli XCX does the only thing she can think to do – make music. Tasking herself with the daunting challenge of writing, recording and releasing an entirely new record in just 40 days, the singer embarks on a journey of personal introspection and creative risk taking. But while quarantine affords Charli a unique time for soul searching, she does not face it alone, instead enlisting her (predominantly) queer fans to help her craft new material. So much more than just a portrait of a pop star in a pandemic, Alone Together is a rousing celebration of creativity in a time of crisis, an affectionate tribute to Charli’s LGBTQIA+ fanbase and a timely testament to the healing powers of community in the face of adversity.
