Dua Lipa has announced tour dates in support of her new album ‘Future Nostalgia’. She’s also announced that her new album will be called ‘Future Nostalgia’.

“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”, she says of being simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. “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.

She 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”, she adds, returning to the ‘Future Nostalgia’ theme, “and I realised that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too”.
