Charli XCX: My new album will 'change' things

Charli XCX thinks her new album could "change the sound" of pop music.

The 'Break The Rules' hitmaker is gearing up for the release of her third LP and is pleased with its progress.

She told i-D magazine: "This album could change the sound of pop music. It's the album I've been trying to make forever. And now I've done it."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer previously revealed she wants her music to help her leave a "legacy" behind.

She shared: "I have a business mind, I have a real drive - I want to have an empire. I want to have more of a legacy, and I think just because I wear what I wear, and am a pop star, doesn't mean I can't have that ... Power gets me off. I always want more than I have."

However, Charli is less than impressed with some of the tracks in her back catalogue of music that she wrote as a young girl.

When asked what she would like to delete from the Internet, she said: "All the songs I wrote when I was 14. They all have titles like 'I Wanna Be Darth Vader' and 'Dinosaur Sex.'"
