Charli XCX has said that she is forming a “supergroup” with Dirty Hit signees No Rome and The 1975, in a highly-anticipated collaboration that’s yet to receive a release date.
Yesterday (February 28), the pop icon took to social media to confirm the news, tweeting that she is very “excited to be forming a supergroup with No Rome and The 1975”.
Earlier in February, No Rome – real name Guendoline Rome Viray Gomez – suggested that new material is imminent. “Me, (the creator of music) Charli XCX & The 1975 have a song together. Got the masters done and waiting on video edit cuts,” he wrote on Twitter.
Charli fuelled the supergroup rumours further by quoting No Rome’s tweet and tagging The 1975, saying: “sounding good boys”.
The 1975’s Matty Healy, meanwhile, confirmed via Instagram in January that he had been working on new music with both Charli XCX and Beabadoobee.
Yet speculation surrounding a collaborative track from the trio of acts has been building for years. Healy first revealed that he had teamed up with Charli XCX back in 2019, when he posted a series of tweets that claimed he had sent her a beat, and described her as a “fucking force”.
On March 18, Charli XCX will premiere her Alone Together documentary at the virtual SXSW 2021 Film Festival. Directed by filmmakers Bradley&Pablo, the film chronicles the making of her 2020 Mercury-nominated album ‘How I’m Feeling Now’, which the singer created in self-isolation throughout the first coronavirus-enforced lockdown earlier that year.
