Dua Lipa set to release "Club Future Nostalgia" on August 21
Dua Lipa is set to release Club Future Nostalgia – an entirely remixed version of her global #1 album “Future Nostalgia,” created in collaboration with The Blessed Madonna on Friday, August 21.
Club Future Nostalgia is a stellar collection of brand new remixes and features from an incredible roll call of superstars, underground heroes and some of the world’s finest dance music talent. The album has been curated and also mixed into a continuous mixtape format by The Blessed Madonna. Marea Stamper (aka The Blessed Madonna) is a Kentucky-born, Chicago-adopted and now London-based DJ and producer who has become one of the most celebrated names in global club culture.
Club Future Nostalgia is an eclectic and euphoric mix of the past and present, with 90’s house blending seamlessly with 2020’s finest pop and remixers, a splash of 80’s soul and a few noughties musical gems added to the blend.
The Blessed Madonna has also remixed “Levitating” feat Madonna and Missy Elliot, which is due for release prior to the album on Thursday, August 13. The album also includes a slam dunk Mark Ronson remix of “Physical” featuring Gwen Stefani. Stefani is set to join Lipa on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 10 when Lipa will step in as a guest host on the popular US late night TV show.
On the creation of Club Future Nostalgia Lipa says: "The last few months have been surreal. I’ve watched you all dance in your homes and on your Zoom parties to Future Nostalgia like you were in the club with me. It brought so much joy to my days spent at home, even though I would’ve much rather been playing these songs live for you all on the road.
"During this time, I decided to take the party up a notch with the incomparable The Blessed Madonna, who secretly helped me to craft the mixtape that would become “Club Future Nostalgia”.
"We invited some friends and legends to join in on the fun with us. Absolute queens Missy Elliot and Madonna joined me for an epic remix of “Levitating,” and my dream girl, Gwen Stefani, and the supreme Mark Ronson teamed up to take “Physical” to the next level. And the party doesn’t stop there - there are so many more surprises to come!"
On working on the album, The Blessed Madonna says: "Taking Future Nostalgia and reimagining it as a mixtape album was an enormous project, which had to be done in absolute secrecy, alone in my attic. In a way building this fantasy out of this beautiful record Dua had already given us was the perfect task for the pandemic. It was a massive and infinitely detailed task. Creating remixes and originals, curating the dream team of additional remixers and weaving the features into a new album was both daunting and thrilling, to say the least. My admiration for Dua only deepened. She is brilliant, once in a generation artist and a sweetheart. Being able to make this love letter with such a legendary cast of characters is beyond comprehension.
Club Future Nostalgia will be available on all DSPs.
