“Let’s take a deep dive shall weee, chapter one,” Dua captioned the clip. The video features clips of Dua recording vocals, writing lyrics and reacting to studio playbacks. “It’s the beauty of the chaos and trying to stay calm through it,” she says in a voice-over over fragments of her new music. “Listening over and over and feeling like, ‘How do I want to tell this story?’”

Dua recently spoke to Rolling Stone about Radical Optimism. “What’s carried me through in all my music is this hint of optimism at the end,” she reflected. “Hopefully, I get to sing [these songs] for a very long time and people listen to them and sing them as well, so it almost becomes like a mantra. What you’re saying is very powerful, so I want there always to be a hint of optimism so that you always see the light at the end of the tunnel in some way, or you manifest something good in your life. That’s what I wanted from this record.”

She went on, “Optimism is radical. It is the hardest thing you can do: remaining positive, especially when everything around you is telling you “It’s not going to work out, or you’re not good enough, or this isn’t going to happen” — whether it’s at the hands of the internet or the way that you feel internally, whatever brings up those feelings. Remaining optimistic is so important. I think the more of that we can spread and put it into our relationships and the people around us and instil that, I think it’s really important.”
