Dua Lipa just announced the title of her upcoming sophomore album, Future Nostalgia, and now she’s giving some insight into the meaning of the title.
The 24-year-old singer also has revealed her European tour dates for 2020, which will span 22 cities throughout April, May, and June.
“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 favorite 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,” Dua said about her upcoming album.
She added, “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 realized that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too.”
The album will be released in 2020 and feature the new single “Don’t Start Now.”
