“Songs that soundtrack specific moments in life can amplify and affect a moment drastically and so I wanted to explore what those moments and songs are with some of my favourite creative people.
“In every conversation I’ve had, I’ve learnt something brand new about each guest and I feel like I’ve gotten to know each and everyone one of them a little bit more.”
Charli XCX’s next single, ‘Good Ones’, will premiere on September 3. The song is set to be “the first single of her new chapter embracing all that the life of a popstar has to offer in today’s world – fame, glamour and global hits”.
