Global popstar Dua Lipa has not only released the name of her upcoming album ‘Future Nostalgia‘ but has also announced a 2020 European tour.
Speaking about ‘Future Nostalgia’ Dua said, “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 favourite 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 continues “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 realised that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too.”
Dua’s latest single ‘Don’t Start Now‘, taken from the upcoming album, has already become a massive hit worldwide with over 170 million streams and is also an iTunes Global #1. Watch the video for ‘Don’t Start Now’ below.
