Dua Lipa Releases New Album “Future Nostalgia”: Streaming
- English singer-songwriter Dua Lipa released her sophomore album “Future Nostalgia” on March 27th. It is her album in three years.
Originally, the album was supposed to be released in April. But the album was leaked in its entirety two weeks before its original release date.
Finally, she announced that the album would be released forward a week.
“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,” Dua Lipa said of the album in a press release. “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.”
- Also, she spoke about the COVID-19 outbreak, “In all these kinds of situations, we actually need to work together to make a change. But I guess, you know, what I’m gonna do, instead of my album coming out April 3rd, my album is actually coming out this Friday, March 27th. Which I’m really excited about. And I am really happy it’s coming out. I’m really excited for you all to hear it and you know, make of it what you will. I hope it brings you some happiness. And I hope it makes you smile. And I hope it makes you dance. And I hope I make you proud.”
