Dua has also been talking to Rolling Stone about her new album, Radical Optimism, out 3 May. “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.”

The singer went on to talk about the album artwork, “Every photo [of this era] looks like it was taken in a different scenario, but they all represent the same thing. The picture for Houdini, for example, was very self-reflective, looking at myself and appreciating where I am, who I am, and what my worth is.

“And then Training Season is me on scaffolding in a very uncomfortable position, but looking very calm. I feel like that resonated with the song. It resonated also with the idea of this radical optimism while being in uncomfortable situations, but being graceful in the process. And this [cover image] shot in particular, remaining calm near a shark, is a massive juxtaposition.”
