Dua Lipa says that her latest album “was written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos.”
Global pop sensation Dua Lipa has made a comeback with her latest single, “Houdini.”
This marks the start of a new chapter of her career after her 2020 hit album, “Future Nostalgia.”
Accompanying the track is its official music video, setting the stage for Dua’s upcoming album release.
Describing “Houdini,” Dua expresses how it encapsulates “that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you just don’t want the party to end.”
The music video, directed by Manu Cossu with André Chemetoff as the cinematographer, portrays Dua revising her choreography in a dance hall after rehearsals, illuminated by fluorescent lights that cast reflections in the room’s mirrors, creating an optical illusion as the energy intensifies.
Dua says, “This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom. ‘Houdini’ is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end.
“You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
“Houdini” was written by Dua Lipa, Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, pivotal collaborators throughout the project. Danny and Kevin are tagged as producers for the single.
Dua reflects on her new album’s creation: “A lot of this album was written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with lightness and optimism of whatever the outcome may be.”
Dua Lipa shot to fame in 2017 with her song “New Rules” from her self-titled album. During the time, she received three Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist.
She also won Best Dance Recording for “Electricity” and secured Best Pop Vocal Album for her well-received second album, “Future Nostalgia.”
