Abracadabra! Dua Lipa reappears for the first time solo in over two years. After testing the waters with Dance The Night released this summer for the soundtrack of the film Barbie, Dua Lipa returns to the forefront this Friday with Houdini, a new title which seems to sign a new era in the career of the British singer.
With the exception of a few singles and collaborations for other artists, she had not released a musical project since the reissue of her 2nd studio album Future Nostalgia (The Moonlight Edition), in February 2021.
This time, everything suggests that the 28-year-old pop star singer is back with an album. After having carefully sorted through her publications on Instagram, Dua Lipa has ramped up the sauce for her next single, a herald of a new musical project. Houdini is a song produced by Kevin Parker (aka Tame Impala), directly referencing the great magician Harry Houdini, whose death was celebrated on October 31 (he died in 1926). It was on this occasion that she began to sow clues about the release of the song. Concerning the future album, Dua Lipa cultivates mystery. She had given some indiscretions in an interview with NME: “The album is different, it's still pop, but it's different sonically, it will be more lyrical. If I told you the title, everything would make sense, but I think we still have to wait.”
On Tuesday, the world star was seen in front of the BBC premises in London to preview his new song to passers-by. “Congratulations, you are the first person to listen to Dua Lipa’s new song!”, could we read on the banner held up by the few extras who accompanied her.
In addition to the release of the song and a music video (available this Friday at midnight), Dua Lipa announced three surprise events in London this Thursday, then in Los Angeles on November 14 and in Tokyo on November 20.
