Dua Lipa is back then. If she was ever gone. I don’t think she was. But she’s going to release a new album, that’s what I mean. She’s not put out one of those since 2020, when she emerged as the queen of lockdown. And now she has a new song out, called ‘Houdini’.

Details on the new album are sparse. Pretty much non-existent. But we do know that the core team of co-writers, alongside Lipa herself, are ‘New Rules’ co-writer Caroline Ailin, PC Music’s Danny L Harle, Adele collaborator Tobias Jesso Jr, and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. So I’d say that bodes well.

Out now, ‘Houdini’ was written by all of that lot, and was produced by Harle and Parker.

“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom”, says Lipa. “’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”, she adds. “I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans”.

“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”, she concludes.

Now, here’s the video for ‘Houdini’:
