Dua Lipa Releases New Song “Future Nostalgia”
- English singer-songwriter Dua Lipa announced that her sophomore album “Future Nostalgia” will be released in 2020.
The lead single “Don't Start Now” was released last month. Following the song, she dropped the album title song on December 13th.
Also, she has revealed the dates for Future Nostalgia 2020 European arena tour, which is slated to kick off on April 26, 2020 at the Wizink Center in Madrid and run through 19 cities before wrapping up on June 19 at the 3Arena in Dublin.
Dua Lipa explained the album in a statement, “What I wanted to do with this album was to break out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to make music that felt like it could sit alongside some of my favorite classic pop songs, whilst still feeling fresh and uniquely mine. I was inspired by so many artists on the new record from Gwen Stefani to Madonna to Moloko to Blondie and OutKast, to name just a few.”
- She continued, “Because of the time that I’d spent on the road touring with my band I wanted Future Nostalgia to have a lot more of a live element, but mixed together with modern electronic production. My sound has naturally matured a bit as I’ve grown up but I wanted to keep the same pop sensibility as I had on the first record. I remember that I was on my way to a radio show in Las Vegas thinking about the direction for this new record and I realized that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too.”
