Dua Lipa Reveals All About Her Upcoming Third Album
Dua Lipa has revealed more about her hotly-anticipated third album in a new interview.
“I don’t think there’s a single song on this record that I didn’t go back and want to rewrite and perfect and change and work on it a bit more and dig a little deeper and see if we could go any further,” Dua told Rolling Stone.
Also apeaking to the publication, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, one of Dua’s collaborators, described the singer-songwriter as a “meticulous” editor.
“Her editing is brutal,” he said, “I’d kind of recoil in horror and go, ‘Oh, no, it’s a great verse!'” Kevin continued. “But then an hour later, we’d have something that I can’t imagine not being in the song.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Dua spoke about her critics, “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care about what the critics thought…. When you put your heart and soul into something, you want people collectively to be like, ‘Oh, it’s changed sonically, and it’s been something different,” she confessed.
Following the announcement of her next single, Training Season – out 15 February – Dua shared a preview of the song to her TikTok, watch below.

Training Season will be released on 15 February on streaming services and limited edition 7″ vinyl, CD and cassette tape – all available to pre-order now.
In a press release about Training Season, Lipa said: “I had been on a string of bad dates, and the last one was the final straw. The next morning I arrived to the studio to Caroline [Ailin], and Tobias [Jesso Jr] asking me how it all went and I immediately declared ‘TRAINING SEASON IS OVER,’ and like the best ‘day after’ debriefs with your mates, we had a lot of laughs and it all quickly came together from there.
“And while it is obviously about that feeling when you are just absolutely done telling people…men specifically in this case, how to date you right; it is also about my training season being over and me growing with every experience. I have never felt more confident, clear or empowered. And while it may be that training season is never over for any of us, you start to see the beauty in finding that person to experience it with. You stop looking for the trainees and become more interested in having someone where you are and someone to grow with.”
