Dua Lipa has announced the release of her next single soon, Illusion, due out on 11 April.

The pop star shared the news in a post via X on Thursday (April 4), sharing a photo of the project’s artwork — which features her looking luminous in a white bikini top and shawl — as well as a teaser video. In the clip, she wears the same outfit as she dances along to a snippet of the pulsing, dance-floor-ready track.

“I could do this dance all night,” she sings in the sneak peek. “Ooh, what you doing? Don’t know who you think that you’re confusing.” “ILLUSION 11TH APRIL ~ YOU READY?” Dua captioned the post with three water-droplet emojis.

When it arrived, Illusion will become the third single the British artist has dropped ahead of her upcoming third studio album Radical Optimism, following Houdini and Training Season. The former debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the latter entered the chart at No. 27.

Dua first announced Radical Optimism in March, simultaneously sharing its cover and tracklist. Illusion is the seventh title on the May 3-slated record, in between French Exit and Falling Forever.

One day prior to her latest news, Dua posted a reel of behind-the-scenes footage from her time working on the album, including bits and pieces of the upcoming music. “It’s the beauty of the chaos and trying to stay calm through it,” she said in a voice-over in the video. “Listening over and over and feeling like, ‘How do I want to tell this story?’”

“I always go for the most upbeat ones to introduce people to the record,” she added. “I can just keep on dancing and keep people dancing. “We’re trying to create a world in a different way, and sonically it was about experimenting. Thematically, it was always about resilience.”
