Listen To Extended ‘Club Mix’ Of Dua Lipa’s New Single ‘Houdini’
“When I was in the studio working on Houdini with my collaborators, we always had this dream of releasing a clubby, house mix of the record,” the singer explained in a press release.
“The song was already the perfect soundtrack to a sweaty night out, but the new third verse just takes it to a whole new level. We’re putting it out into the world a little earlier than expected, but the fans just couldn’t wait! Think of [the ‘Club Mix’] as an early holiday gift from me to you.”
Lipa had previously teased the dancefloor-ready ‘Houdini’ edit during an interview with Rolling Stone. “We have this dream of making an extended club mix that we wanna have,” she told the publication. “So we’re working on that.”
Elsewhere, the artist explained that the rest of her new album is “quite different” to Houdini. She added that the tracks featured on the Future Nostalgia follow-up “do have a very psychedelic throughline overall”, however.
Lipa continued: “‘Houdini’ has so much electronic variety, but at the same time it has a lot of interesting instrumentation and feels very organic as well. That’s something I really wanted to convey on the album.”
Lipa made her big-screen debut in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie earlier this year, while contributing to the film’s soundtrack with the global hit single Dance the Night. Her last album, Future Nostalgia, was released in 2020.
Dua has been suggesting a change of direction for her next album in recent months. Back in August, the singer hinted at a new sound in a new interview with The New York Times Style Magazine.
