More Dua Lipa music is on the way. In an Aug. 7 New York Times profile, the star revealed she’s finishing up her third album, which she said is set to arrive in 2024.
The process of making her third LP, she told the outlet, has been “insular and exciting,” and she added that she’s not sure what fans will think of it. “You have no idea what the reaction is going to be once it’s out, so there’s this nervous feeling,” she said. Although Lipa confirmed that the next project will still be pop at its core, this time it will also have elements of 1970s-era psychedelia, according to The Times. She also shared that this next project will be “more personal.” Still, she said, she’s not exactly trying to bare her soul to the world. “I think it’s a marketing tool: How confessional can you be?” she added. “I also don’t put so much of my life out there for people to dig into the music in this weird, analytical way.”
Lipa released her second album, “Future Nostalgia,” in March 2020, and her career has only blossomed since then. She’s launched an organization called Service95, which brands itself as “a global editorial platform founded by Dua Lipa” that “encompasses a website, weekly newsletter, the podcast ‘Dua Lipa: At Your Service,’ and the Service95 Book Club.” She also made her movie debut with her role as the blue-haired Mermaid Barbie in “Barbie” in July, and her song “Dance the Night” was a highlight from the movie’s soundtrack.
