Dua Lipa has spoken to the Wall Street Journal about the sessions for her next album, what it was like releasing Future Nostalgia during the pandemic and coping with fame.

On the next album, Dua said: “I’ve done a big chunk of writing: It’s starting to take shape; I’ve got a lot of it recorded. It has a vision. It has a name, I think—for now. It’s just been fun experimenting. I’m always going to make pop music, but it has its own unique sound, which is exciting and something that feels like a movement from Future Nostalgia. It’s still in baby form, so we’ll see as it progresses.”

Dua went on to discuss the release of Future Nostalgia, “I always have this viewpoint that you have to be outside of your comfort zone for things to be rewarding. So when the pandemic happened, and everyone was worried about whether we should release the album, I was just like, F— it, maybe it’s just what we need. While everyone’s at home, maybe this is the album we should be putting out. It was scary, because you had no idea how long we were going to be in this pandemic. Everything was a big question mark. But I had a sense that we just had to do it.”

The singer also opened up about the impact of fame on her personal life and the way that she’s coped with the increased attention: “Something that I’ve realized over time is how little people actually know,” she explained. “I’ve made peace with the fact that people can think what they want to think, but no one really, truly knows what’s happening behind closed doors…. My circle’s really tight, my family and my friends keep me so grounded,” she added. “And it gives me some kind of comfort that not everything is out there that would take away from your life and privacy.”
