Having released her latest single, Dua Lipa stated that the other compositions on her third studio full length are “quite different” from ‘Houdini.’
Exchanging her ‘Future Nostalgia’ disco era-inspired LP for the just-releasd 1970s comeback single, the now 28-year-old pop star confirmed that the rest of the record is varied, though they all have that “psychedelic throughline”.
In an interview with iHeartRadio, Dua stated “All other songs on the album are quite different, but they do have a very psychedelic throughline overall. ‘Houdini’ has so much electronic variety, but at same time it has a lot of interesting instrumentation and feels very organic as well…that’s something I really wanted to convey on the album.”
Ditching her prior disco pop sound for music inspired by “1970s-era psychedelia,” Lipa accomplished her goal with the help of Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and several other co-writer collaborations.
In a statement about her brand new ‘Houdini’ single, the Warner Bros recording artists said:
“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom.” “’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. I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
About the recording process involved with the the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Future Nostalgia,” the songstress stated “A lot of this album was written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with lightness and optimism of whatever the outcome may be.”
