Dua Lipa Shares New Single ‘Houdini’: Watch Video
Dua Lipa has released her highly anticipated new single, Houdini, watch the video below. The single was written by Lipa, Tobias Jesso Jr, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and PC Music’s Danny L Harle, and produced by Parker and Harle.
In a statement, Dua Lipa said “Houdini” “embodies that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you just don’t want the party to end.”
“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom,” she added. “‘Houdini’ is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end. You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. Im looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
To celebrate the release of Houdini, Lipa announced three surprise launch events for her fans. The first one took place in London last night at the English National Ballet, where the video for the single was shot. Subsequent events will take place in Los Angeles on 14 November and Tokyo on 20 November.
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.
The singer said that the process of making her third album has been “insular and exciting” and suggested that the album will be influenced by 70s psychedelia, she also suggested that Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker may be on board. “You have no idea what the reaction is going to be once it’s out, so there’s this nervous feeling,” she added.
