Dua Lipa relayed that her new album is "50%" done.
In a podcast episode of Dua Lipa: At Your Service with Elton John, the singer shared an update about her upcoming album.
"It’s like, I wanna say, maybe 50% of the way. I’ve still got lots more to do, but it’s starting to feel good," she said in the podcast episode.
Dua added that she is elated about the new tracks.
"It’s starting to take shape. I’m very excited about some of the new songs, so it’s always exciting to look forward towards something," she stated.
Back in January, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Dua shared that her upcoming album has a distinct sound compared to her previous albums.
"It has a vision. It has a name, I think—for now. It’s just been fun experimenting. I’m always going to make pop music, but it has its own unique sound, which is exciting and something that feels like a movement from Future Nostalgia. It’s still in baby form, so we’ll see as it progresses," she relayed.
But Dua highlighted that she is not rushing to release her next album.
"In all honesty, it’s probably not what my fans want to hear, but I’m in no rush," she stated.
In May 2021, Warner Records UK President Joe Kentish told Variety that Dua was actually "talking about album No. 3 when we barely had No .2 done."
"You’re half-expecting that she might want to take a break or go about things differently but she’s like ‘Right, what’s next?’ Her interests, her knowledge, her thirst to learn new things and to be in control of what she does just grows and grows. She’s taking time to fully realize the album conceptually, but her belief in herself and the belief that she can pull off something completely different and at scale has only grown," Joe said in the interview.
Dua is currently on a concert tour in support of her sophomore album Future Nostalgia. The singer kickstarted the concert on February 9, 2022 in Miami, Florida. Dua will be touring around North America, Latin America, Europe, and Oceania.
The singer released Future Nostalgia in March 2020 and produced several hits like "Levitating," "Physical," and "Break My Heart," among others. Future Nostalgia also bagged the Best Pop Vocal Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
