AceShowbiz - Charli XCX says her George Daniel has inspired her to "take some time" when creating new music. The 30-year-old singer started dating The 1975 drummer and lyricist a year ago, and he has helped her to slow down and appreciate the tunes she has made rather than try to drop several albums a year.
She told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column, "Now that I’m in a relationship with another musician he's influenced me a lot with his process and how he and his band work. It's really different to how I work and that has definitely influenced me and my process. I used to be very, 'Quick, quick, quick, album a month, let's go'. Now I'm like, 'Oh, maybe it's cool to take some time and live in the music that you create.' My process is definitely evolving."
"I've always been very much a spontaneous, go in the room and see what happens type of a songwriter and I've never really cared to prep or think about what I want to say. But actually my process has completely changed and I'm thinking a lot more about being hyper-specific especially with my lyrical content," she added.
Charli also plans to create her "version" of music that is influenced by rockers The Velvet Underground. She continued, "I always kind of feel that when I finish an album cycle and I'm beginning a new one that I should try and make my version of The Velvet Underground. That's where I've landed, like a Velvets type thing, but my version."
Charli confirmed her relationship with George in May 2022. She shared some snaps of them together on Instagram, and wrote in the caption, "a delicious week off (sic)"
