Global Pop Superstar Dua Lipa has revealed the name of her eagerly awaited forthcoming album – ‘Future Nostalgia’ due for release in 2020.
Dua has also announced her massive ‘Future Nostalgia’ 2020 European Arena Tour – which starts in Madrid on April 26th and visits 22 cities across Europe and the UK ending in Dublin on June 19th.
The lead track from the album ‘Don’t Start Now’ is already a massive hit worldwide with over 170 million streams to date.
“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. 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 Lipa – Talking about ‘Future Nostalgia’.
