What do we already know about Dua Lipa's next album? Here's the lowdown on the next step in the singer's discography...
Dua Lipa's sophomore album dominated the charts in 2020 and we've all been eager for another record from the songstress ever since!
The 26-year-old musician has released two albums and one remix version, the 'Moonlight Edition', since she burst into the mainstream in 2017.
Fans have a sneaking suspicion that the 'Levitating' singer is gearing up for another big project, and she's broken her silence on the rumoured album.
Dua recently revealed that her third work "has its own unique sound" – here's everything we know about the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 'Future Nostalgia'....
The pop sensation spoke to the Wall Street Journal in January and gave an insight into the sonic direction of her next record.
Lipa told the publication: "It’s just been fun experimenting. I’m always going to make pop music, but it has its own unique sound, which is exciting & something that feels like a movement from Future Nostalgia.”
She went on to reveal that she has been endlessly making music for album three, saying: “I’ve done a big chunk of writing: It’s starting to take shape; I’ve got a lot of it recorded."
The 'Break My Heart' singer's third studio album is yet to be formally announced, and there are few clues to what the title could be.
However, in Dua's interview with WSJ she did confirm that the next project has been named.
She said: “It has a vision. It has a name — for now."
The president of Warner Records spoke with Variety in May 2021 about the musical powerhouses next career steps.
He said that the next album would be “something completely different and at scale.”
“She was talking about album No.3 when we barely had No.2 done," he revealed – so maybe we can expect an album sooner rather than later?
In October, Dua shared a carousel post to her Instagram that showed her getting creative in the studio.
In the snaps, she can be seen in a vocal booth surrounded by impressive looking tech; she also poses with several producers and songwriters who she has tagged in the post.
Fans instantly deduced that she's working on new material – and we can only hope it's another full eleven-track album!
The pop sensation teased her followers with the caption: "hey hooo lets go!!!"
Sounds like Dua is just as ready for new music as we are...
In Dua's Instagram post teasing new music, she tagged some industry names...
If she is, in fact, breaking ground on her third album then these collaborators could very well feature on her next big release.
The producer Koz and songwriter Sarah Hudson were seen in the studio with Miss Lipa.
No official date for the project is set, but the songstress did briefly mention the timeline of the project in her interview with the Wall Street Journal.
She said: “In all honesty, it’s probably not what my fans want to hear, but I’m in no rush."
There was a three-year gap between her debut, Dua Lipa, and her smash hit successor, Future Nostalgia, but lets hope we don't have to wait until 2023 for DL3...
Fans online are theorising we could be treated to another album next summer, fingers crossed.
